New Decius

Population14.749 billion

LeaderKaiser Friedrich IV


The Vers Galactic Empire of New Decius is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Kaiser Friedrich IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, avowedly heterosexual populace, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 14.749 billion Versians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Versian economy, worth a remarkable 1,933 trillion Papiermarks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,124 Papiermarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

People who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, and cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Decius's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularized.

New Decius is ranked 177,244th in the world and 795th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.96 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
