The Dolphin Isles

Population13.46 billion

LeaderQueen Atifa Zerfas


The United Archipelago of The Dolphin Isles is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Atifa Zerfas with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 13.46 billion Dolphinesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Defense, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cinica. The average income tax rate is 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Dolphinesian economy, worth a remarkable 3,522 trillion Clams a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 261,682 Clams, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, and bustling back-alley clinics treat everything from sports injuries to angina. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Dolphin Isles's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Dolphin Isles is ranked 85,476th in the world and 21st in Crassia for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,243.84 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
