Citrus Rutaceae

Population800 million



The Republic of Citrus Rutaceae is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sinensis with an iron fist, and notable for its vat-grown people, infamous sell-swords, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 800 million Citrus Rutaceaeans 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orange. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Citrus Rutaceaean economy, worth 80.6 trillion Citruses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Soda Sales, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,714 Citruses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, bicycle parking sheds have sprouted like mushrooms near rail stations after cars were banned, newly-peaceful nations are forced to use assault rifles as farming tools due to a lack of funds for purchasing anything else, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Citrus Rutaceae's national animal is the Raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Citrus Rutaceae is ranked 171,734th in the world and 7,415th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.06 Obesity Rate.
