Sable Blanc

Population23.737 billion


The Queen's State of Sable Blanc is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 23.737 billion Sable Blancians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, moralistic, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 87.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Sable Blancian economy, worth a remarkable 1,320 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 55,628 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A dictator has seized power and outlawed elections, the government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sable Blanc's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Sable Blanc is ranked 174,527th in the world and 9th in Qatar for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.14 Crimes Per Hour.
