Crossed swords

Population157 million


The Federation of Crossed swords is a very large, efficient nation, remarkable for its burgeoning Falcon population. The hard-working, democratic population of 157 million Crossed swordsians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.8%.

The thriving Crossed swordsian economy, worth 8.00 trillion Steels a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 50,971 Steels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 180,423 per year while the poor average 10,397, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Crime is a problem. Crossed swords's national animal is the Falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Crossed swords is ranked 116,933rd in the world and 3rd in The Dark Swords for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -4.47 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
