“Say anything at all”
|Category: Scandinavian Liberal Paradise|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Queen's State of Artell is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by the Governor with an even hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.024 billion Artellians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67%, 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.
High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, none has been named as Artell's national religion, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and the Governor has just been declared ruler of Artell in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown. Artell's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is none, and its currency is the betale.
