Votak Matim

Population10.23 billion

LeaderPrime Minister Lana Hayashi

CurrencyVotak dinar

The Republic of Votak Matim is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Lana Hayashi with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 10.23 billion Votakim are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded 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 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Votak economy, worth a remarkable 1,919 trillion Votak dinars 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 187,651 Votak dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, peer pressure from cooler world leaders directs Votak government policy, and funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 7,533rd in the world and 366th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 187,651.01 Standard Monetary Units.
