Votak Matim

Population14.294 billion

LeaderPrime Minister Lana Hayashi

CurrencyVotak krona

The Republic of Votak Matim is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Lana Hayashi with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, unlimited-speed roads, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.294 billion Votakim 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Korin. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Votak economy, worth a remarkable 2,672 trillion Votak kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 186,942 Votak kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prime Minister Lana Hayashi spends weekends doing the laundry of foreign leaders, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, lines of trenches demarcate the nation's borders, and the government puts forth the claim that harming young girls is wrong. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Votak Matim's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Votak Matim is ranked 2,835th in the world and 133rd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 17,951.13 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
