Cyber Colonists

Population569 million


The Republic of Cyber Colonists is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 569 million Cyber Colonistsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 40.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Cyber Colonistsian economy, worth 19.2 trillion rupees a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,794 rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Cyber Colonists's radio stations, Cyber Colonists has designated Cyber Colonists City as its capital city, the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, and fruit pickers with degrees in wolf psychology are a common sight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cyber Colonists's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cyber Colonists is ranked 48,259th in the world and 1,644th in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 608.35 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
