Vat of the Queen

Population166 million


The Empire of Vat of the Queen is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 166 million Vat of the Queenians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 44.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Vat of the Queenian economy, worth 1.62 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 9,734 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vat of the Queen's national animal is the Wolf.

Vat of the Queen is ranked 89,961st in the world and 16th in Urr for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 520.23 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
