Population4.777 billion

LeaderPrime Minister Mike Harriot


The Republic of Townsvalley is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Mike Harriot with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, avowedly heterosexual populace, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 4.777 billion Civilians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newlands. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Civlized economy, worth 358 trillion Hektes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Basket Weaving. Average income is 74,988 Hektes, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 443,171 per year while the poor average 5,869, a ratio of 75.5 to 1.

Corrupt industrial practices are spreading like a plague, the "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, and drawing men's naughty bits isn't considered to be art. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Townsvalley's national animal is the Markhor, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Townsvalley is ranked 5,972nd in the world and 539th in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 67.04 Bank.
