“No Better Than This?”
|Category: Liberal Democratic Socialists|
Regional Influence: Vassal
Location: Pacific Union
The Queen's State of Aimmey is a gargantuan, pleasant nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 13.68 billion Aimmeyians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The tiny, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defence. The average income tax rate is 20%, but much higher for the wealthy. A large private sector is led by the Soda Sales industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Retail.
All tariffs have been abolished, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, and gambling is outlawed. Crime is moderate. Aimmey's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its currency is the betale.
