Van Demons Land Tasmania

Population376 million

CurrencyChinese Yuan
AnimalTasmanian Devil

The Kingdom of Van Demons Land Tasmania is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its national health service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 376 million Van Demons Land Tasmanians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 65.7%.

The thriving Van Demons Land Tasmanian economy, worth 33.5 trillion Chinese Yuan a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,161 Chinese Yuan, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget', breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and class action lawsuits have gone up in smoke thanks to government interference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Van Demons Land Tasmania's national animal is the Tasmanian Devil, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Van Demons Land Tasmania is ranked 178,010th in the world and 202nd in The Labyrinth for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 81.79 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
