Dorchester and Sussex

Population677 million



The United Kingdom of Dorchester and Sussex is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed population of 677 million Susseians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cambentown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Sussexian economy, worth 59.5 trillion Piscones a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,840 Piscones, with the richest citizens earning 8.8 times as much as the poorest.

Faithful allies are always valued, the government spends millions of Piscones every year prosecuting spammers, hordes of faceless civil servants are running cities, and power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dorchester and Sussex's national animal is the Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Dorchester and Sussex is ranked 53,523rd in the world and 4th in The putnan empire of nations for Most Average, scoring 43.83 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
