Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Order of Voxum Mortalum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Grand Master with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.306 billion Mortalumians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Industry are also considered important, while Administration and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkspace. The average income tax rate is 88.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Voxum Mortalumian economy, worth a remarkable 4,240 trillion mortalias a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 208,830 mortalias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

All footpaths have tollbooths, The Grand Master can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, and students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Voxum Mortalum's national animal is the Undead Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is immortalism.

Voxum Mortalum is ranked 1,699th in the world and 21st in Europeia for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
