The Vistula

Population6.302 billion

LeaderEmil Sikorski

AnimalSilver Crab

The Commonwealth of The Vistula is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Emil Sikorski with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 6.302 billion Vistulans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Torun. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vistulan economy, worth 821 trillion Czerwonies a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 130,303 Czerwonies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, the government is in utter turmoil following the recent abolishment of the tax code, the nation's apology for those it has executed in the last year has come a little late for some, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Vistula's national animal is the Silver Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Vistula is ranked 77,571st in the world and 2,964th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 153,384 Standard Monetary Units.
