Vodol-Kya

The Colony of Vodol-Kya is a large, genial nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 62 million Vodol-Kyans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 31.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Vodol-Kyan economy, worth 2.05 trillion Voldiches a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,005 Voldiches, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Punitive tariffs protect local industry, nudity is frowned upon, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, and military spending is on the increase. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Vodol-Kya's national animal is the Stars , which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Vodol-Kya is ranked 148,750th in the world and 278th in The United Federations for Most Armed, with 0.3 weapons per person.
