The Fortem

Population1.553 billion

LeaderJay Coleman
FaithVarious religions


The Liberal Paradise of The Fortem is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jay Coleman with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 1.553 billion Fortemians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cradlion. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fortemian economy, worth 163 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,601 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, and votes of no confidence regularly remove unwanted MPs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Fortem's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Various religions.

The Fortem is ranked 57,698th in the world and 466th in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,665.18 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
