The Plebeian States

Population1.014 billion

CapitalVirtute Capitis


The People's Republic of The Plebeian States is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rousseau with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.014 billion Plebs 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 enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Virtute Capitis. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Plebeian economy, worth 107 trillion Rubles 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 106,116 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. Crime is totally unknown. The Plebeian States's national animal is the Ox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Plebeian States is ranked 204,354th in the world and 7,535th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -11.22 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
