The Survivors Of The Wasteland

CapitalCapital Wasteland


The Commonwealth of The Survivors Of The Wasteland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.677 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Wasteland. The average income tax rate is 34.4%.

The all-consuming Settler economy, worth 752 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 frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,548 Caps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked, and new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps. 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 58,369th in the world and 2,077th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,861.1 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
