The Vistula

Population6.519 billion

AnimalSilver Crab

The Commonwealth of The Vistula is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Emil Sikorski with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 6.519 billion Vistulans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Torun. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vistulan economy, worth 845 trillion Czerwonies a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,751 Czerwonies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, nine out of ten citizens of The Vistula answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Vistula's national animal is the Silver Crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Vistula is ranked 226,202nd in the world and 9,084th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -8.61 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
