Keeping Watch

Population1.712 billion


The Constitutional Monarchy of Keeping Watch is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.712 billion Keeping Watchians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The large government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.1%.

The very strong Keeping Watchian economy, worth 78.0 trillion rupees a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is 45,548 rupees, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 160,907 per year while the poor average 9,319, a ratio of 17.3 to 1.

Courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Keeping Watchians, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, the urinary fragrance of seedier establishments is thankfully hidden by the smell of stale smoke, and racial supremacists indulge their wildest fantasies in cinemas and theatres across the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Keeping Watch's national animal is the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Keeping Watch is ranked 55,898th in the world and 598th in Artificial Solar System for Most Developed, scoring 63.53 on the Human Development Index.
