Greater Covenantland

Population423 million



The Federation of Greater Covenantland is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 423 million Greater Covenantlandians 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Covenantdia. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Greater Covenantlandian economy, worth 22.9 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 54,097 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Visual acuity is worsening amongst teenagers, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Covenantland's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Greater Covenantland is ranked 26,730th in the world and 1,343rd in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 86.79 Years.
