The Siberian Confederacy

Population2.504 billion

CapitalSaint Paul
LeaderPrime Minister Jacque Gautiere


The Republic of Minnesota of The Siberian Confederacy is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Jacque Gautiere with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.504 billion Minnesotans 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 enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Paul. The average income tax rate is 64.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Siberian Confederacyian economy, worth 85.5 trillion Monetas a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 34,145 Monetas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign lack of enthusiasm for Siberian Confederacyian nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, and all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Siberian Confederacy's national animal is the Beaver, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Siberian Confederacy is ranked 199,689th in the world and 54th in Callista for Most Beautiful Environments, with 453.61 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
