The Republic of Adkins Station is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.627 billion Adkins Stationians 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.
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, Law & Order, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boca Grande. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92%. 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.
Students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, Adkins Station has designated Boca Grande as its capital city, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Adkins Station's national animal is the butterfly, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Ari.
