Side 10

Population11.7 billion



The Socialist Communes of Side 10 is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 11.7 billion Communards are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mazovgrad. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Side 10ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,941 trillion credits 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 165,930 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, science fiction invariably depicts socialist societies as Utopian, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Side 10's national animal is the tapir, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Side 10 is ranked 166,571st in the world and 7,441st in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 50.81 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
