Ultra Front

Population105 million


The Federation of Ultra Front is a very large, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 105 million Ultra Frontians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Ultra Frontian economy, worth 1.38 trillion Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 13,126 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ultra Front's national animal is the Rooster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ultra Front is ranked 34,810th in the world and 3rd in United Fascist Workers Association for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 45.83 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
