The International Skating Union

Population511 million


The Federation of The International Skating Union is a huge, pleasant nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices. The hard-working population of 511 million International Skating Unionians 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, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 26.7%.

The International Skating Unionian economy, worth 19.5 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,064 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, and soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The International Skating Union's national animal is the skater.

The International Skating Union is ranked 164,401st in the world and 273rd in Figure Skating for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -3.16 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
