Viserion Flames

The Empire of Viserion Flames is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, devout population of 4.795 billion Viserion Flamesians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.1%.

The strong Viserion Flamesian economy, worth 327 trillion Gold Dragons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 68,386 Gold Dragons, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 226,862 per year while the poor average 15,385, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

"Mad Max: Returning Again to Barrydrome" is this year's unexpected summer blockbuster, every politician claims to be at least 1% Native Viserion Flamesian, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Viserion Flames's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Viserion Flames is ranked 166,367th in the world and 158th in Zazumo for Most Pro-Market, scoring -58.22 on the Rand Index.
