The Founding Citadel

Population1.11 billion

LeaderOmniComplexity Inc


The Communicative Corp Hub of The Founding Citadel is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by OmniComplexity Inc with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.11 billion Founding Citadelians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katesia. The average income tax rate is 4.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Founding Citadelian economy, worth 131 trillion Rubes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 118,909 Rubes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Reddish-brown is the new black, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Founding Citadel's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Founding Citadel is ranked 139,917th in the world and 4,423rd in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.85 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
