“Veritas Omnia Vincit”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Superpower
Location: The Shazbotdom Empire
The Shazbotdom Colony of Alraibris is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 17.466 billion 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 Education, the Environment, and Defence. The average income tax rate is 72%, 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.
Libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, all-natural foods are becoming a major fad, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alraibris's national animal is the Havoc, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Black Dollar.
