The Wretched of this Earth

Population895 million

CapitalThe Commune of Marxigrad

CurrencyPopular Dollar

The Socialist Union of The Wretched of this Earth is a huge, safe nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 895 million Wretched of this Earthians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Commune of Marxigrad. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Wretched of this Earthian economy, worth 69.9 trillion Popular Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 78,066 Popular Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to The Commune of Marxigrad to enjoy their national art, beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, and graffiti graces every city's streets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Wretched of this Earth's national animal is the Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Wretched of this Earth is ranked 48,873rd in the world and 515th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 78,066.6 Standard Monetary Units.
