Crossed swords

Population1.265 billion


The Federation of Crossed swords is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its burgeoning Falcon population. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.265 billion 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 Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.

The thriving Crossed swordsian economy, worth 65.7 trillion Steels a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 51,966 Steels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 183,944 per year while the poor average 10,600, 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 19,180th in the world and 1st in The Dark Swords for Most Pro-Market, scoring 80 on the Rand Index.
