Votak Matim

Population12.283 billion

LeaderPrime Minister Lana Hayashi

CurrencyVotak krona

The Republic of Votak Matim is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Lana Hayashi with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.283 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 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Votak economy, worth a remarkable 2,269 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 184,778 Votak kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, some are born loving old plays and some have old plays thrust upon them, and one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber. 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 226,985th in the world and 8,659th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -579.96 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
