The True Wanderer

Population361 million


The Jingoistic States of The True Wanderer is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service, parental licensing program, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 361 million True Travelers are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.5%.

The powerhouse True Wandererian economy, worth 26.8 trillion bricks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Average income is 74,315 bricks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 252,799 per year while the poor average 16,103, a ratio of 15.7 to 1.

Politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, and tipsy fans frequently invite themselves to the board meetings of sports clubs. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. The True Wanderer's national animal is the Man, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The True Wanderer is ranked 176,319th in the world and 34th in Krillin for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,537.26 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
