Kutumal XI

The Roavinian SPSF Puppet of Kutumal XI is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 8.509 billion Kutumal XIians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 50.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Kutumal XIian economy, worth 196 trillion Shiny Green Things a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 23,107 Shiny Green Things, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kutumal XI's national animal is the Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kutumal XI is ranked 43,035th in the world and 101st in Artificial Solar System for Safest, scoring 103.3 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
