Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of The European Confederates is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Minister Arnold Johnson with an even hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, frequent executions, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.202 billion European Confederatesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oslo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.6%.

The frighteningly efficient European Confederatesian economy, worth 136 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 113,856 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Rural citizens live in terror of their local village constable, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, and the government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment. Crime is well under control. The European Confederates's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The European Confederates is ranked 86,630th in the world and 30th in Solar Alliance for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,082.58 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
