Votak Matim

Population16.561 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 museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.561 billion Votakim are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. 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 3,106 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 187,550 Votak kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no 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 306,893rd in the world and 8,935th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -585.4 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
