Side 10

Population7.111 billion

CapitalRay City


The Space Colony Cluster of Side 10 is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.111 billion Spacenoids enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ray City. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Side 10ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,233 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 173,505 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, glamping Spacenoids won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, and trespassers entering Leader's office are immediately vaporized. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Side 10's national animal is the tapir, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Side 10 is ranked 2,225th in the world and 114th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 139.87 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
