The Bank of Caprica

Population588 million

AnimalBlue Stardust Phoenix

The Republic of The Bank of Caprica is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its smutty television, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 588 million Bank of Capricans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Defense, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Bank of Caprican economy, worth 80.2 trillion Credits 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 impressive 136,328 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 9.2 times as much as the poorest.

The military struggles with recruitment, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, military barracks resemble five-star hotels, and college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. The Bank of Caprica's national animal is the Blue Stardust Phoenix.

The Bank of Caprica is ranked 141,776th in the world and 27th in United Earth Government for Most Influential, scoring 92 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
