Area QX-83

Population31.057 billion

CurrencyIPER-s gold bar
AnimalYour worst nightmare

The Randveres fifth ICBM base of Area QX-83 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.057 billion Area QX-83ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 33.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Area QX-83ian economy, worth a remarkable 5,878 trillion IPER-s gold bars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 189,287 IPER-s gold bars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, and suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Area QX-83's national animal is the Your worst nightmare, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Area QX-83 is ranked 529th in the world and 1st in The Backyard of Randvere for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 19,684.43 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
