The Founding Citadel

Population678 million



The Third Reformed States of The Founding Citadel is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, flagrant waste-dumping, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 678 million Founded Citadelians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katesia. The average income tax rate is 5.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Founding Citadelian economy, worth 79.5 trillion Rubes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 117,236 Rubes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, and behind every local dictator is a Founding Citadelian advisor whispering in their ear. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Founding Citadel's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Founding Citadel is ranked 238,390th in the world and 8,244th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -7.75 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
