Sovereign California

Population37.516 billion

CapitalLos Angeles ― Los Angeles NCD
LeaderEmpress Fiora Devnostraeva


The Confederated Empire of Sovereign California is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Fiora Devnostraeva with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 37.516 billion Californians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Angeles ― Los Angeles NCD. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Californian economy, worth an astonishing 10,926 trillion Sovereigns a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 291,243 Sovereigns, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, an Earth Prime Tourist Association survey has rated Sovereign California #1 for number twos, euthanasia is legal, and the nation is wading into dangerous waters. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Sovereign California's national animal is the Phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Devnostraevism.

Sovereign California is ranked 2,042nd in the world and 1st in Earth Prime for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 49 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
