Ultrackia

Population93 million

The United Socialist States of Ultrackia is a large, cultured nation, remarkable for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The quiet, industrious population of 93 million Ultrackians 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 Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Ultrackian economy, worth 4.12 trillion Ultracks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 44,352 Ultracks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens who inform on their neighbors can trade government "loyalty points" for food and other prizes, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, schoolchildren are taught to boo and hiss at Leader's name, and children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ultrackia's national animal is the Ontroth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ultrackia is ranked 69,998th in the world and 39th in Conf of Traditional Socialist Nations for Most Average, scoring 40.13 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
