Peoples Republic of Columbus

Population381 million

Capital10th Street


The Rogue Nation of Peoples Republic of Columbus is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 381 million Columbusians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 10th Street. The average income tax rate is 20.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Columbusian economy, worth 33.5 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,873 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

School uniforms are compulsory, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, the only things Columbusians vote on are cutest Hawk competitions, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Peoples Republic of Columbus's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Peoples Republic of Columbus is ranked 192,968th in the world and 7,908th in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 13.66 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
