The City-17 Resistance

Population305 million


The Nomadic Peoples of The City-17 Resistance is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 305 million Rebels have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 37.0%.

The A Rebel economy, worth 15.5 trillion Undetermineds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Retail, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,687 Undetermineds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Re-education centers are being added to most prisons, supermarkets must refund spoilt milk even six months after the sale, every workday begins with group therapy, and ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The City-17 Resistance's national animal is the Unknown, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The City-17 Resistance is ranked 173,961st in the world and 249th in Wintreath for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 57.33 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
