The Federated Republic of Enschede

Population521 million


The Federation of The Federated Republic of Enschede is a huge, safe nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 521 million Enschedeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Enschedean economy, worth 22.1 trillion guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,327 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Truck drivers turn their engines off and coast whenever they're going downhill, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Federated Republic of Enschede's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Federated Republic of Enschede is ranked 179,126th in the world and 356th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 467.04 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
