Leader'President' Edoard d'Vissea


The Federation of Visse is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by 'President' Edoard d'Vissea with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.881 billion Visseans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 23.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vissean economy, worth 199 trillion lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 105,906 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Official maps have to be revised on a weekly basis, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Visse's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Visse is ranked 224,537th in the world and 9,133rd in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 14.49 Tourists Per Hour.
