The Realist Polities

Population27.637 billion

Leaderthe Strategic Council
FaithUtilitarian Shinto


The Sovereign State of The Realist Polities is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Strategic Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 27.637 billion Realists enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Huijing. The average income tax rate is 7.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Realist Politiesian economy, worth a remarkable 6,384 trillion Mets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 231,017 Mets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

An increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat, religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, and water fights now end with thousands dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Realist Polities's national animal is the vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Utilitarian Shinto.

The Realist Polities is ranked 862nd in the world and 1st in Coalition of Sovereign Nations for Longest Average Lifespans, with 95.51 Years.
