Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Sprat
The United Socialist States of Visdenburg is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 389 million Visdenburgians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Visdeny. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Visdenburgian economy, worth 12.7 trillion Visdenic Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Retail. Average income is 32,717 Visdenic Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and solid-gold toilets are Visdenburgian prisons' least expensive furnishings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Visdenburg's national animal is the Grey Seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
