Side 10

Population5.033 billion

CapitalRay City


The Space Colony Cluster of Side 10 is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.033 billion Spacenoids are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Side 10ian economy, worth 835 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 165,974 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. 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 97,028th in the world and 2,859th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 195 billion Standard Monetary Units.
