The Dolphin Isles

Population13.89 billion

LeaderQueen Atifa Zerfas


The United Archipelago of The Dolphin Isles is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Atifa Zerfas with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 13.89 billion Dolphinesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cinica. The average income tax rate is 6.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dolphinesian economy, worth a remarkable 3,600 trillion Clams a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 259,207 Clams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, and bustling back-alley clinics treat everything from sports injuries to angina. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Dolphin Isles's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Dolphin Isles is ranked 12,901st in the world and 7th in Crassia for Most Secular, with 85.72 Atheism Rate.
