Southern Fort Knox

Population3.709 billion


The Republic of Southern Fort Knox is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.709 billion Southern Fort Knoxians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 21.7%.

The strong Southern Fort Knoxian economy, worth 221 trillion SPITS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 59,660 SPITS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, and the Holy Office of the Inquisition is the highest court in the land. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Fort Knox's national animal is the Llamas, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Southern Fort Knox is ranked 136,383rd in the world and 5,319th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 63.32 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
