The Beneluxian Empire

Population491 million


The Commonwealth of The Beneluxian Empire is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 491 million Beneluxians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government prioritizes Welfare, with Law & Order, Defense, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.4%.

The Beneluxian Empirean economy, worth 21.0 trillion Guilders a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. Average income is 42,720 Guilders, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The main interest rates change daily based on the latest news story, military barracks resemble five-star hotels, the Beneluxian Empirean cut of Apocalypse Now sets the helicopter scene to eerie silence, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. The Beneluxian Empire's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Beneluxian Empire is ranked 184,985th in the world and 7,764th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 10.55 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
