Recon Island

Population1.853 billion

LeaderMarshal James Yoast


The Federation of Recon Island is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Marshal James Yoast with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.853 billion Recon Islandians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wheatland. The average income tax rate is 11.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Recon Islandian economy, worth 319 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 172,598 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Vanity is the constant enemy of dignity, recorded music can be rented but not bought from record companies, the path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, and traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Recon Island's national animal is the Coyote, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Recon Island is ranked 145,289th in the world and 817th in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 644 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
