The Vanguard Fleet

Population3.185 billion

LeaderAdmiral Wilhelm IX


The Admiralty of The Vanguard Fleet is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Admiral Wilhelm IX with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.185 billion Vanguardians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vaguard. The average income tax rate is 37.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Vanguardian economy, worth 163 trillion Schmeckles a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 51,440 Schmeckles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The once prosperous capital is in utter decline, an increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and businesses have become paranoid as waves of lawsuits sweep the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Vanguard Fleet's national animal is the Seahorse, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

The Vanguard Fleet is ranked 138,773rd in the world and 66th in Social Technocratic Union for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 32,047.67 Standard Monetary Units.
