The Settlement Defense Front of Mars

Population7.181 billion

LeaderSalen Kotch


The Military Dictatorship of The Settlement Defense Front of Mars is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Salen Kotch with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.181 billion Martians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mars. The average income tax rate is 23.8%.

The thriving Martian economy, worth 650 trillion Martians a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,593 Martians, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children grow up long before the paperwork for their lemonade stands can be sorted out, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, the path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, and in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Settlement Defense Front of Mars's national animal is the Martian, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Settlement Defense Front of Mars is ranked 36,300th in the world and 5th in Changuu for Most Armed, with 2.58 weapons per person.
