The Splintonian Empire

Population1.223 billion

LeaderComrade Hamilton

CurrencySplintonian Pound

The United Socialist States of The Splintonian Empire is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Comrade Hamilton with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.223 billion Splintonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ascension. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Splintonian Empirean economy, worth 28.5 trillion Splintonian Pounds 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 mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 23,271 Splintonian Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, and Comrade Hamilton has just been declared ruler of The Splintonian Empire in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Splintonian Empire's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Splintonian Empire is ranked 128,224th in the world and 276th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 48.77 on the Human Development Index.
