|Leader||Mikhail Orlov Vensva|
The Federated Imperial Provinces of Nothark Vilum is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mikhail Orlov Vensva with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 4.583 billion Vilumians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laurentia. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Vilumian economy, worth 693 trillion Vilumian Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 151,364 Vilumian Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
The "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Vilumian Navy, unemployed accountants keep double-entry ledgers of their benefit claims, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Vilumians, and graffiti graces every city's streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nothark Vilum's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
