Proxima Centauri A Colony

Population18 million

AnimalMountain Banshee

The Federation of Proxima Centauri A Colony is a tiny, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18 million Proxima Centaurians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 8.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Proxima Centauri A Colonyian economy, worth 1.10 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 61,121 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, the dwindling faithful in the nation make expensive pilgrimages to the remaining places of worship, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and artists are pillars of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Proxima Centauri A Colony's national animal is the Mountain Banshee.

Proxima Centauri A Colony is ranked 161,897th in the world and 3,817th in the Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,003.24 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
