“Where angels fear to tread”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Vassal
Location: The Land of Kings and Emperors
The Supreme Majistirium of Angels Blood is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Syaoran Fay with a fair hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 8.317 billion 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 Seraphim. The average income tax rate is 86%, 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 fire protection service is wholly government-funded, Max Barry is this year's Miss Angels Blood, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, and the new hit series "Angels Blood's Got Trauma" has corporate executives fleeing the country. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Angels Blood's national animal is the defeathered angels, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the wingtip.
