The Fourth Redoubt

Population1.865 billion

LeaderDefinitely Absolutely Not A Kangaroo


The Dominion of The Fourth Redoubt is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Definitely Absolutely Not A Kangaroo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.865 billion Fourth Redoubtians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crest. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Fourth Redoubtian economy, worth 293 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 157,187 credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, too many hyper-intelligent chefs can spoil the allegorical broth, imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment, and stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Fourth Redoubt's national animal is the kestrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Fourth Redoubt is ranked 25,708th in the world and 586th in the West Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 62,909.8 Standard Monetary Units.
