Underwater Sovereignties

Population7.923 billion

LeaderJames Osman


The Federation of Underwater Sovereignties is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by James Osman with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, national health service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.923 billion Attonesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oceton. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Attonesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,049 trillion Shellcoins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,516 Shellcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, barbers who trim a few inches of hair bill the government for their labor, and the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Underwater Sovereignties's national animal is the Porpoise, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Underwater Sovereignties is ranked 4,622nd in the world and 8th in The Free Nations Region for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,382.51 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
