Greater Xiamen

Population608 million

CurrencyXiamenese Yuan
AnimalWhite Egret

The United Socialist States of Greater Xiamen is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, devout population of 608 million Xiamenese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 49.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Greater Xiamenian economy, worth 27.6 trillion Xiamenese Yuan a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,450 Xiamenese Yuan, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

If they thought anyone would listen the older generation would likely say that nobody listens to them any more, Greater Xiamen has designated Greater Xiamen City as its capital city, the disabled are forced to undergo an MRI scan every time they pick up their benefit payments, and drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Xiamen's national animal is the White Egret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Greater Xiamen is ranked 80,993rd in the world and 3,796th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 65.21 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
