United Corporations Consolidated

Population337 million

The Incorporated States of United Corporations Consolidated is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 337 million United Corporations Consolidatedians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The powerhouse United Corporations Consolidatedian economy, worth 31.1 trillion shares a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. Average income is 92,401 shares, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 642,582 per year while the poor average 4,627, a ratio of 138 to 1.

Victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, and the standard government reply to any query is "there is no spoon". Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. United Corporations Consolidated's national animal is the paper money, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

United Corporations Consolidated is ranked 51,147th in the world and 1,792nd in the Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,169.93 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
