The Vanguard Fleet

Population2.114 billion

LeaderAdmiral Wilhelm IX


The Admiralty of The Vanguard Fleet is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Admiral Wilhelm IX with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.114 billion Vanguardians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaguard. The average income tax rate is 36.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Vanguardian economy, worth 109 trillion Schmeckles a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 51,761 Schmeckles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The once prosperous capital is in utter decline, an increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and businesses have become paranoid as waves of lawsuits sweep the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Vanguard Fleet's national animal is the Seahorse.

The Vanguard Fleet is ranked 129,817th in the world and 57th in Social Technocratic Union for Most Primitive, scoring -71.13 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
