Socialist Benelux

Population640 million


CurrencyDutch Euro

The Dominion of Socialist Benelux is a huge, safe nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed population of 640 million Beneluxians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amsterdam. The average income tax rate is 48.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Socialist Beneluxian economy, worth 26.0 trillion Dutch Euros a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,618 Dutch Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, Socialist Benelux has designated Amsterdam as its capital city, a punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions, and school uniforms are compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Benelux's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Socialist Benelux is ranked 170,763rd in the world and 828th in Europe for Highest Economic Output, with 26.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
