Votak Matim

Population10.669 billion

LeaderPrime Minister Lana Hayashi

CurrencyVotak krona

The Republic of Votak Matim is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Lana Hayashi with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.669 billion Votakim are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Korin. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Votak economy, worth a remarkable 1,984 trillion Votak kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 186,052 Votak kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A degree in Prime Minister Lana Hayashi Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, military officials are questioning the policy of ceding the nation's territory in exchange for promises not to invade it, and the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Votak Matim's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Votak Matim is ranked 214,118th in the world and 9,648th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -12.49 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
