The United Islands Republic of Adihan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister James Stewart with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 17.132 billion Ad’ihanis 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Social Policy, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adihan. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Ad’ihanais economy, worth 847 trillion Tazoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 49,474 Tazoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Military spending is on the increase, government officials are held to the highest standard of morality, pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, and penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Adihan's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is officially none.
