Saint Von Artemis

Population177 million


The Queendom of Saint Von Artemis is a very large, orderly nation, renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 177 million Artemisians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 56.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Saint Von Artemisian economy, worth 10.2 trillion Praisis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 57,838 Praisis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, fat-shaming is now public policy, community organizers have given up going door to door because nobody is home, and farmers in arid regions are puzzled with government directions to plant rice this year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Von Artemis's national animal is the Chartreux, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Saint Von Artemis is ranked 80,481st in the world and 198th in Europe for Fattest Citizens, with 12.04 Obesity Rate.
