“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, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Iris IV with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.103 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.
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 Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constantinople. The average income tax rate is 62%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
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 the all-pervasive 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, and its currency is the guilder.
