“For the Greater Good”
|Category: Left-wing Utopia|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: the West Pacific
The Free Territory of Chestaan is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its hatred of cheese, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.235 billion Chestaanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Equitopia. The income tax rate is 100%.
The sizeable but stagnant Chestaanian economy, worth 79.4 trillion Guevaras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 10,976 Guevaras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Chestaan's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chestaan's national animal is the Scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
