The Strong Peoples

Population2.539 billion



The Land of The Strong Peoples is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jedediah with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.539 billion Strong Peoplesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krakopolis. The average income tax rate is 35.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Strong Peoplesian economy, worth 226 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,012 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Turtles that venture near secret military bases are routinely executed for espionage, parents dread their examinations more than their children, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Strong Peoples's national animal is the Turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

The Strong Peoples is ranked 30,449th in the world and 22nd in OmniOne for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 184.35 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
