The Twelve Waterfalls

Population603 million



The Free Land of The Twelve Waterfalls is a huge, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 603 million Waterfallsians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cereria. The average income tax rate is 45.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Twelve Waterfallsian economy, worth 31.9 trillion droplets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 52,832 droplets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, and The Twelve Waterfalls has designated Cereria as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown. The Twelve Waterfalls's national animal is the Wookiee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Twelve Waterfalls is ranked 154,736th in the world and 83rd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.37 Crimes Per Hour.
