The World Capitalist Confederation

Population3.567 billion

LeaderHenry McGrovester


The Corporatist Empire of The World Capitalist Confederation is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Henry McGrovester with an even hand, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.567 billion British are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Briton economy, worth 768 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 215,397 pounds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,458,513 per year while the poor average 11,716, a ratio of 124 to 1.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', theoretical science is only theoretical, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making British any less frightened, and politicians have been known to swim in pools filled with pounds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The World Capitalist Confederation's national animal is the slave, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The World Capitalist Confederation is ranked 153,604th in the world and 6,689th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 35.24 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
