The Holographic Expanse

Population936 million


The Nomadic Peoples of The Holographic Expanse is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 936 million Holographic Expanseans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Holographic Expansean economy, worth 115 trillion Rhizomes 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 Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 123,441 Rhizomes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, the roads are notorious throughout the region for their peril, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Holographic Expanse's national animal is the Neanderthal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Holographic Expanse is ranked 163,652nd in the world and 6,161st in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.8 Obesity Rate.
