Utep Miners

Population11.287 billion


The Queen's State of Utep Miners is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of public education, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.287 billion Utep Minersians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The very strong Utep Minersian economy, worth 436 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is 38,644 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 262,737 per year while the poor average 2,076, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Voting is voluntary. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Utep Miners's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Utep Miners is ranked 111,326th in the world and 4th in Union of Great Britain for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 73.82 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
