The Co-Prosperity-Sphere

Population4.779 billion

FaithThe Non-Aggression Principle


The Non-Communist Free Union of The Co-Prosperity-Sphere is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Corporations with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 4.779 billion citizens enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ancapistan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The frighteningly efficient citizenly economy, worth 827 trillion Cryptoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 173,230 Cryptoes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,386,260 per year while the poor average 5,056, a ratio of 274 to 1.

Both illness and poverty are seen as signs of low moral worth, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, it's all quiet on the western front, and package deals offer tourists the chance to visit the frozen remains of the previous tour group. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Co-Prosperity-Sphere's national animal is the Tankie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Non-Aggression Principle.

The Co-Prosperity-Sphere is ranked 93,756th in the world and 16th in The Confederacy of Free Nations for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,632.79 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
