Votak Matim

Population11.031 billion

LeaderPrime Minister Lana Hayashi

CurrencyVotak krona

The Republic of Votak Matim is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Lana Hayashi with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.031 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 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 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Votak economy, worth a remarkable 2,064 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 187,176 Votak kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The true length of the coastline of Votak Matim may never be measured, halberds are common 18th birthday presents, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and people are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies. 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 227,868th in the world and 10,506th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -21.63 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
