The Universe World

Population12.517 billion

CurrencyUniversal Dollar

The Holy Democracy of The Universe World is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working population of 12.517 billion Universals 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 50.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Universe Worldian economy, worth 518 trillion Universal Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,454 Universal Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In musicals everybody's a little bit racist, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, The Universe World has designated The Universe World City as its capital city, and Leader has just been declared ruler of The Universe World in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Universe World's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Universe World is ranked 72,804th in the world and 6th in The Great Universe for Highest Poor Incomes, with 30,369.34 Standard Monetary Units.
