Regional Influence: Minnow
The Queen's State of Carruthers is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.704 billion Carruthersians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4%. A small private sector is dominated by the Retail industry.
Voting is voluntary, all tariffs have been abolished, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime is pervasive, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Carruthers's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its currency is the betale.
