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 zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.218 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. The average income tax rate is 10.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Vissean economy, worth 125 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 notable. Average income is an impressive 103,430 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Most pop videos prominently feature the Vissean flag, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and posing for pictures is an integral part of military training. 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 141,526th in the world and 6,410th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 18.98 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
