Overview Factbook Dispatches Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Christmas Republic of Transfermium is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Boris Vasiliovich Ivanov with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.87 billion Transfermians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dubnium. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Transfermian economy, worth 522 trillion Transfermian Roubles 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 135,057 Transfermian Roubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, organ donation is compulsory, and the government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Transfermium's national animal is the Tabby Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Walpoleism.

Transfermium is ranked 7,515th in the world and 27th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Best Weather, with 222 Meters Of Sunlight.
