The Republic of Nebula 188 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its frequent executions, avant-garde cinema, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.566 billion Nebula 188ians are known throughout the region for their efficiency and work ethic, as well as their general suspicion of leisure.
The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.1%.
The strong Nebula 188ian economy, worth 128 trillion boops a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,016 boops, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 178,616 per year while the poor average 10,064, a ratio of 17.7 to 1.
Leader's opponents have adopted dogs to chase away the mailman, hospitals have poor data security but send lots of bodies to be encrypted, fathers are free to sell their daughters to whomever they choose, and you can call your arthritic immigrant neighbour for all your roof-tiling and guttering needs. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nebula 188's national animal is the floof, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
