Teleporting Void Freighters

Population451 million


The Borderlands of Teleporting Void Freighters is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed population of 451 million Freighters enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 25.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Res-port economy, worth 19.8 trillion currencies 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Pizza Delivery, Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. 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 43,817 currencies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, citizens have voted the song "Leader Smells Like A Parrot" as their new national anthem, the tawdry celebrity gossip section has moved to the front page of most newspapers, and the army's trophy cabinets have gone all-organic. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Teleporting Void Freighters's national animal is the parrot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Teleporting Void Freighters is ranked 240,330th in the world and 13th in The Planet X for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 27.78 tourists per hour.
