Villa Caruso

Population1.497 billion

LeaderTheodore II


The Grand Duchy of Villa Caruso is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Theodore II with an even hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.497 billion Carusans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sapienza-Virinia. The average income tax rate is 28.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Villa Carusoan economy, worth 173 trillion Kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 115,821 Kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The military struggles with recruitment, scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, and the government seizes all major gold finds. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Villa Caruso's national animal is the Seagull and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Villa Caruso is ranked 56,318th in the world and 2,298th in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 2,780.64 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
