Siovanija and Teusland

Population9.888 billion

LeaderPresident Magdalena Hoskova


The United Republics of Siovanija and Teusland is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by President Magdalena Hoskova with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, aversion to nipples, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.888 billion Siovanijans or Teus 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Education is also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Borograd. The average income tax rate is 75.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Siovanijan or Teus economy, worth a remarkable 1,715 trillion tolars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 173,498 tolars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, fine dining is just too fine for most of the populace, and the National Art Gallery's newest exhibit is the 500-year-old Luna Lisa. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Siovanija and Teusland's national animal is the Goldhorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Siovanija and Teusland is ranked 261,826th in the world and 181st in Atlantian Oceania for Most Beautiful Environments, with 7.29 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
