Japo-German Qingdao

Population12 million


The Colony of Japo-German Qingdao is a tiny, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 12 million Japo-German Qingdaoans are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, moralistic, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.5%.

The thriving Japo-German Qingdaoan economy, worth 970 billion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 80,859 Marks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 305,622 per year while the poor average 14,884, a ratio of 20.5 to 1.

Video evidence of cruel animal experiments tends to be of poor quality, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones, and adultery has been made a capital offence. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Japo-German Qingdao's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Japo-German Qingdao is ranked 163,772nd in the world and 136th in First World Order for Lowest Crime Rates, with 55.81 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
