The Vistula

The Commonwealth of The Vistula is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emil Sikorski with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 6.754 billion Vistulans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Torun. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vistulan economy, worth 888 trillion Czerwonies a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,496 Czerwonies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, Vistulans submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, and vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR. 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 32,824th in the world and 1,270th in The North Pacific for Most Patriotic, with 24.24 Flags saluted per person per day.
