“Indivisible and Inseparable”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Handshaker
Location: the South Pacific
The United Kingdom of Brutland and Norden is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by King Kyle II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 16.636 billion Nord-Brutlandeses 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 concentrates mainly on Social Welfare, although Education and Defence are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kingsville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75%. 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.
Visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, and drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brutland and Norden's national animal is the Brute cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the livro.
