“Novus ordo seclorum”
|Category: Capitalist Paradise|
Regional Influence: Powerbroker
The Consulate of Byronmandy is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Roland Bedivere with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 12.148 billion Byronmandyians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Allentown. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining industries.
A large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Byronmandy's national animal is the Griffin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its currency is the Crown.
