“A Haven from Oppression; A Beacon of Liberty”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Beautiful Socialist Paradise of Big Bay Island is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The First Citizen with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, cynical population of 10.354 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Island City. The average income tax rate is 100%. 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.
Divorce lawyers are found begging on the streets, clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, skateparks can be found in every city, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Big Bay Island's border. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Big Bay Island's national animal is the otter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the florin.
