“For the Greater Good”
|Category: Left-wing Utopia|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: the West Pacific
The Free Territory of Chestaan is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 4.729 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Equitopia. The average income tax rate is 100%. 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.
The arms industry has been shut down in a surge of pacifism, all recreational drugs are legal, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime is totally unknown. Chestaan's national animal is the Scorpion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Guevara.
