The Ghost Of General Lee

Population1.341 billion

CurrencyConfederate dollar

The Confederacy of The Ghost Of General Lee is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.341 billion Ghost Of General Leeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 31.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Ghost Of General Leean economy, worth 51.6 trillion Confederate dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,460 Confederate dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government provides its citizenry with the same mass produced rations, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, endocrinology is a rapidly growing field of study, and the fattest folk in The Ghost Of General Lee look to be the happiest ones. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ghost Of General Lee's national animal is the Rattlesnake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Ghost Of General Lee is ranked 95,746th in the world and 3rd in Dixie for Most Extreme, scoring 19.91 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
