“You say Shark I say hey Man”
|Category: Moralistic Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: Real Places
The Theocracy of Brandonian is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by a crazed druggy with an even hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.644 billion are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amendela. The average income tax rate is 49%. A large private sector is dominated by the Furniture Restoration industry.
Artists are pillars of society, nursing mothers are often arrested for indecent exposure, people are moving into treehouses in record numbers, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brandonian's national animal is the Thing, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Theocracist, and its currency is the Clump.
