Silence Totem

Population401 million

Currencywolf coins

The Dominion of Silence Totem is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 401 million Silence Totemians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.3%.

The strong Silence Totemian economy, worth 19.2 trillion wolf coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 47,855 wolf coins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 287,262 per year while the poor average 3,607, a ratio of 79.6 to 1.

TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, genetic researchers have been expelled, and no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Silence Totem's national animal is the wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Silence Totem is ranked 24,345th in the world and 1st in Vexian Sphere of Influence for Rudest Citizens, with 98.86 Insults Per Minute.
