“Twirling Toward Freedom”
|Category: Capitalist Paradise|
Regional Influence: Sprat
Location: The North Pacific
The Free Land of Vathnutum is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 675 million Vathnutumians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The relatively small, pro-business government prioritizes Administration, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.7%.
The thriving Vathnutumian economy, worth 48.1 trillion Vathins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 71,247 Vathins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 222,212 per year while the poor average 17,546, a ratio of 12.7 to 1.
New government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, the Vathnutum City Film Festival recently voted 'Vathnutumian Getting Hit By Football' as best film, and autopsies often involve only cursory examination. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vathnutum's national animal is the basilisk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
