The House of Habsburg

Population30.54 billion


AnimalWhite Deer

The Divine Royal Family of The House of Habsburg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 30.54 billion House of Habsburgians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hedingham. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient House of Habsburgian economy, worth a remarkable 6,100 trillion Sovereigns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 199,743 Sovereigns, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 614,383 per year while the poor average 50,184, a ratio of 12.2 to 1.

Suburban families are finding themselves increasingly short on food as they waste precious water on their lawns, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, the government has undertaken a massive education and health program to combat VODAIS, and parents are held criminally responsible for their children's crimes. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The House of Habsburg's national animal is the White Deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The House of Habsburg is ranked 111,407th in the world and 179th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Politically Free, scoring 54.44 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
