TNO Subreddit

Population3.541 billion



The Empire of TNO Subreddit is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its enslaved workforce, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.541 billion Redditors are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Germania. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming TNO Subredditian economy, worth 470 trillion Upvotes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 132,954 Upvotes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, the government is buying children's books by the thousands, ship captains always order a return to port at the slightest sign of rain, and mechanics are often exhausted by their work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TNO Subreddit's national animal is the Göring, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

TNO Subreddit is ranked 15,735th in the world and 5th in The New Order Last days of Europe for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,175.45 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
