Kaapstad Spes Bona

Population22.926 billion


The Queen's State of Kaapstad Spes Bona is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of public education, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 22.926 billion Kaapstad Spes Bonans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.0%.

The powerhouse Kaapstad Spes Bonan economy, worth 857 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 37,399 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 132,382 per year while the poor average 7,628, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Voting is voluntary. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kaapstad Spes Bona's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Kaapstad Spes Bona is ranked 129,674th in the world and 8th in Cape Town for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring zero on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
