The Airship Pilots Union

Population812 million

CurrencyGold Coin

The Armed Republic of The Airship Pilots Union is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 812 million Airship Pilots Unionians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 59.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Airship Pilots Unionian economy, worth 52.0 trillion Gold Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 64,057 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to The Airship Pilots Union City to enjoy their national art, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, ad-blocking has been nationalised, and criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Airship Pilots Union's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Airship Pilots Union is ranked 12,231st in the world and 674th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.28 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
