The Vistula

Population8.75 billion

LeaderEmil Sikorski

AnimalSilver Crab

The Commonwealth of The Vistula is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Emil Sikorski with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate population of 8.75 billion Vistulans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Torun. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vistulan economy, worth a remarkable 1,207 trillion Czerwonies a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,005 Czerwonies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elite teams of assassins have been sent into Brasilistan, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Vistula's national animal is the Silver Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Vistula is ranked 814th in the world and 506th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 201 valid endorsements.
