King Henry IV

Population6.747 billion

CapitalLinn City
LeaderKing Black


The Kingdom of King Henry IV is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Black with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.747 billion Comrades 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Linn City. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient King Henry IVian economy, worth a remarkable 1,462 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 216,825 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Babies are increasingly seen as a luxury, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, and jokes told in elementary school often come back to haunt politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. King Henry IV's national animal is the Panda, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

King Henry IV is ranked 146,802nd in the world and 7,160th in The North Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 44.61 Workforce Participation Rate.
