Location: The North Pacific



Population513 million


The Republic of Tulcan is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 513 million Tulcanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 17.0%.

The strong Tulcanian economy, worth 44.9 trillion Tems a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,487 Tems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, girls who wear lipstick are berated for pandering to male gazes, and Tulcan has designated Tulcan City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Tulcan's national animal is the Liger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tulcan is ranked 104,251st in the world and 3,258th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 139 billion Standard Monetary Units.
