Le Rochelle

Population10.406 billion

CapitalAddis Ababa
LeaderMERI Mekonnen Zekulu Ketema


The Galla of Le Rochelle is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by MERI Mekonnen Zekulu Ketema with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 10.406 billion Gallans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Environment are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Addis Ababa. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Gallan economy, worth a remarkable 1,201 trillion Birrs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 115,481 Birrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Skateparks can be found in every city, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Addis Ababa to enjoy their national art. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Le Rochelle's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular.

Le Rochelle is ranked 157,029th in the world and 144th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.11 Crimes Per Hour.
