Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: United Kingdom of Ireland
The Republic of Alonga is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 14.184 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Social Welfare, although Education and Healthcare are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 73%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.
The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, voting is voluntary, Presbyterian has been named as Alonga's national religion, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alonga's national animal is the hawk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Presbyterian, and its currency is the euro.
