Democratic States of South Vietnam

Population3.267 billion

LeaderPresident Tran


The Second Republic of Democratic States of South Vietnam is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Tran with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.267 billion South Vietnamese are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saigon. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient South Vietnamese economy, worth 304 trillion rongs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,082 rongs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Democratic States of South Vietnam isn't what it used to be, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, rumor has it that President Tran has won three lotteries in a row, and government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Democratic States of South Vietnam's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Democratic States of South Vietnam is ranked 36,819th in the world and 44th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Highest Average Incomes, with 93,082.6 Standard Monetary Units.
