Underwater Sovereignties

Population4.907 billion

LeaderJames Osman

CurrencyDigital Shellcoin

The Dominion of Underwater Sovereignties is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by James Osman with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.907 billion Oceanians 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oceton. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Oceanic economy, worth 585 trillion Digital Shellcoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,257 Digital Shellcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stuttering trypanophobes are doomed never to marry, the Oceton Women's Prison Choir now has a baritone section, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Underwater Sovereignties's national animal is the Porpoise, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Underwater Sovereignties is ranked 119,121st in the world and 281st in The Free Nations Region for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,183.55 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
