The Feld

Population753 million

CapitalFortress Long


The Federation of The Feld is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its public floggings, enslaved workforce, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 753 million Feld are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortress Long. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Feld economy, worth 71.6 trillion Rounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 95,029 Rounds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 860,947 per year while the poor average 1,236, a ratio of 696 to 1.

Feld tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, agricultural employees work for peanuts, anti-government demagogues have a devil of a time evading authorities, and people often complain that they're going in circuitous routes all the time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Feld's national animal is the Gophall, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Feld is ranked 11,964th in the world and 325th in The East Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 10,307.93 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
