Southern Vulcan

Population2.905 billion

The Empire of Southern Vulcan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and digital currency. The compassionate population of 2.905 billion Vulcanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vulcanian economy, worth 454 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 156,459 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, the television adaptation of Jennifer Government is the most popular program in the nation, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and religious households enthusiastically use whips in private. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Southern Vulcan's national animal is the Yellow Spotted Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Southern Vulcan is ranked 146,478th in the world and 5th in The New Galactic Democratic Republic for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 43.55 Workforce Participation Rate.
