Regional Influence: Hegemony
Location: Troop of Eagle Scouts
The Democratic Republic of --Spatula-- is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 18.688 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The medium-sized, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Social Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Uranium Mining.
The nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, there are no minimum wage laws, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. --Spatula--'s national animal is the burger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the splat.
