Summerset Castle

Population10.432 billion



The Occupied Land of Summerset Castle is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Barnes with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.432 billion Summersetians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Winterspring. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Summersetian economy, worth a remarkable 4,007 trillion shards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 384,164 shards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

No true communist is an unbeliever, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, and the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Summerset Castle's national animal is the frog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Solarity.

Summerset Castle is ranked 59,088th in the world and 1,857th in Osiris for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,620.76 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
