Leader'President' Edoard d'Vissea


The Federation of Visse is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by 'President' Edoard d'Vissea with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.225 billion Visseans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 10.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Vissean economy, worth 127 trillion lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,681 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Most pop videos prominently feature the Vissean flag, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and posing for pictures is an integral part of military training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Visse's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Visse is ranked 216,611th in the world and 9,725th in The North Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -11.07 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
