The Totality of Life

Population11.654 billion


The Most Serene Republic of The Totality of Life is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 11.654 billion Totality of Lifeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Totality of Lifean economy, worth 397 trillion Times 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 34,098 Times, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, The Totality of Life is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Totality of Life's national animal is the Death, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Totality of Life is ranked 73,694th in the world and 1st in The Black Bloc for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,353.53 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
