Trindade and Martim Vaz

The Democratic Monarchy of Trindade and Martim Vaz is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Johannes Maayst with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, unlimited-speed roads, and anti-smoking policies. The democratic population of 1.123 billion Vazians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Atlantis. The average income tax rate is 71.5%.

The all-consuming Trindade and Martim Vazian economy, worth 100 trillion Lagoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,370 Lagoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

People who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, and artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Trindade and Martim Vaz's national animal is the Capricorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Trindade and Martim Vaz is ranked 24,546th in the world and 51st in United Kingdom for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 3,236.67 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
