The Survivors Of The Wasteland

Population7.892 billion

CapitalCapital Wasteland


The Commonwealth of The Survivors Of The Wasteland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.892 billion Settlers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Wasteland. The average income tax rate is 34.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Settler economy, worth a remarkable 1,100 trillion Caps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,469 Caps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Settler Moonshine", short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, and court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Survivors Of The Wasteland's national animal is the Deathclaw and its national religion is Atomism.

The Survivors Of The Wasteland is ranked 215,108th in the world and 5,745th in the Rejected Realms for Least Corrupt Governments, with 68.33 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
