Habsburg Spania

Population130 million


The Kingdom of Habsburg Spania is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 130 million Habsburg Spanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Spirituality, although Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 22.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Habsburg Spanian economy, worth 5.52 trillion Pesetas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,468 Pesetas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, and a massive campaign is underway to ensure the race of Habsburg Spania remains pure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Habsburg Spania's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Habsburg Spania is ranked 127,846th in the world and 137th in Greater Middle East for Fattest Citizens, with 9.66 Obesity Rate.
