The Confederated Socialist States

Population485 million



The Commonwealth of The Confederated Socialist States is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and hatred of cheese. The quiet, industrious population of 485 million Unionists are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elafonisos. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Unionist economy, worth 28.9 trillion Drachmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 59,635 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People often complain that they're going in circuitous routes all the time, children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Confederated Socialist States's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Confederated Socialist States is ranked 185,918th in the world and 130th in Wintercrest for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.98 Crimes Per Hour.
