Steampunk Airship

Population1.047 billion

AnimalManx Cat

The Free Land of Steampunk Airship is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.047 billion Automatons live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.4%.

The strong Steampunk economy, worth 46.8 trillion Widgets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 44,658 Widgets, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 287,825 per year while the poor average 2,799, a ratio of 102 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Steampunk Airship's national animal is the Manx Cat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Steampunk Airship is ranked 176,644th in the world and 6,384th in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -7.75 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
