Amsterdam VIII

Population614 million



The Commonwealth of Amsterdam VIII is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 614 million New Amsterdamers enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 36.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Amsterdam VIIIian economy, worth 26.7 trillion francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,415 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Constantinople to enjoy their national art. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Amsterdam VIII's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Amsterdam VIII is ranked 141,189th in the world and 4,468th in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 44.34 Insults Per Minute.
