“Peace through traditional methods”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: the South Pacific
The Serene Dominion of Ancient Slobovia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Iris IV with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 15.214 billion Ancient Slobovians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 62.1%.
The strong Ancient Slobovian economy, worth 750 trillion guilders a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 49,338 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.
Large areas of Ancient Slobovia are not accessible by the public, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and the government is pursuing a new programme aimed at promoting cultural sophistication. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ancient Slobovia's national animal is the silver bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
Ancient Slobovia is ranked 102nd in the South Pacific and 4,670th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 798.1 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
