That Vault Boy

Population67 million

AnimalTwo-Headed Bear

The Republic of That Vault Boy is a large, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 67 million NCR Citizens are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.8%.

The very strong That Vault Boyian economy, worth 4.44 trillion Caps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is 66,319 Caps, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter', the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, it is popularly believed that "cheese every day keeps disaster away", and autopsies often involve only cursory examination. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. That Vault Boy's national animal is the Two-Headed Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

That Vault Boy is ranked 28,541st in the world and 6th in Vault Tec for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 5,015.9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
