Regional Influence: Negotiator
The Enlightened Republic of Bad Omen is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Coco Jambo with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 19.137 billion Bad Omenians 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Public Transport. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Azweiz. The average income tax rate is 43%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Punitive tariffs protect local industry, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, and scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Bad Omen's national animal is the Snow Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the escudo.
