Peoples Republic of Columbus

Population895 million

Capital10th Street


The Rogue Nation of Peoples Republic of Columbus is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 895 million Columbusians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Healthcare, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 10th Street. The average income tax rate is 37.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Columbusian economy, worth 66.3 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,091 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, and sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Peoples Republic of Columbus's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Peoples Republic of Columbus is ranked 73,944th in the world and 2,729th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,189.24 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
