Vilit Umanstan

Population180 million


The Confederacy of Vilit Umanstan is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 180 million Vilit Umanstanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 57.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Vilit Umanstanian economy, worth 6.63 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 36,847 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, and diaper sales are up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vilit Umanstan's national animal is the dingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vilit Umanstan is ranked 117,421st in the world and 5,116th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 42.77 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
