The United Rim

The Community of The United Rim is a large, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, enslaved workforce, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 81 million United Rimians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.3%.

The thriving United Rimian economy, worth 6.07 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is 74,897 bitcoins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 414,102 per year while the poor average 6,831, a ratio of 60.6 to 1.

Popular candidates who don't suffer last-second political scandals tend to get fished out of the The United Rim City River, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. The United Rim's national animal is the Seuclid, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The United Rim is ranked 9,376th in the world and 17th in The Alterran Republic for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 414,102.14 Standard Monetary Units.
