The Universe World

Population7.979 billion

CurrencyUniversal Dollar

The Holy Democracy of The Universe World is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working population of 7.979 billion Universals 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 Education, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 32.1%.

The Universe Worldian economy, worth 340 trillion Universal Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 42,704 Universal Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Universe World's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Universe World is ranked 5,105th in the world and 1st in The Great Universe for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 7,534.33 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
