The New United Socialist Random Empire

Population688 million

CapitalNew Chancia Randomia


The United Socialist States of The New United Socialist Random Empire is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 688 million New Randomians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Chancia Randomia. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Random economy, worth 80.5 trillion Randoms a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 117,029 Randoms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, the The New United Socialist Random Empire Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, the government funds large training centres to turn Platypuses into functioning members of society, and the GPS-tracked jogging routes of military personnel are a possible security risk. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New United Socialist Random Empire's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The New United Socialist Random Empire is ranked 81,054th in the world and 140th in The United Federations for Highest Economic Output, with 80.5 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
