The Culture25

Population958 million

CapitalDemented but Determined


The Federation of The Culture25 is a huge, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 958 million Culture Citizens are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Demented but Determined. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Culturian economy, worth 107 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 112,566 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parking's carefree without parking car fees, government programs are less "written" and more "plagiarised", referenda are held for every conceivable government action, and engineers preemptively order lawyers after every power cut. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Culture25's national animal is the Idiran, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Culture25 is ranked 54,575th in the world and 1,846th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,584.65 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
