South Stockton

Population1.59 billion

LeaderThe South Stockton Federal Council


The Democratic States of South Stockton is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The South Stockton Federal Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.59 billion South Stocktonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Rudy. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong South Stocktonian economy, worth 127 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,395 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The South Stocktonian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", no one knows how to tie a reef knot, religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Stockton's national animal is the Alligator, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

South Stockton is ranked 39,487th in the world and 1,188th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 68.33 on the Human Development Index.
