OuterGalactic Banking Clan

Population263 million

CapitalMain Vault fortress


The Federation of OuterGalactic Banking Clan is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 263 million OuterGalactic Banking Clan memebers are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Main Vault fortress. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.5%.

The frighteningly efficient OuterGalactic Banking Clanian economy, worth 27.0 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 102,731 credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 505,348 per year while the poor average 11,925, a ratio of 42.4 to 1.

Citizens need a magnifying glass and color chart to distinguish between nearly identical brand labels, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, street crime is on the rise as police officers spend most of their time in prisons, and it's not just poseurs who wear oversized sound-cancelling headphones as they walk the city streets. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. OuterGalactic Banking Clan's national animal is the Blurrg, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

OuterGalactic Banking Clan is ranked 9,872nd in the world and 315th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 270.68 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
