“Resident of Algeria”

Regional Influence: Diplomat
Location: North Africa
The Abdiwali Family of Achmel Abdiwali is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.326 billion Achmel Abdiwalians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, the Environment, and Defence. The average income tax rate is 53%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Achmel Abdiwali's national animal is the tapir, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the achi.
