Kaapstad Spes Bona

Population21.295 billion


The Queen's State of Kaapstad Spes Bona is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable 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 21.295 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 are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.0%.

The powerhouse Kaapstad Spes Bonan economy, worth 794 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 37,305 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 132,048 per year while the poor average 7,609, 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 150,020th in the world and 8th in Cape Town for Most Income Equality, scoring 5.76 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
