“For the Greater Good”
|Category: Compulsory Consumerist State|
Regional Influence: Eminence Grise
Location: Nordic Lands
The Imperial Main Province of Copenhagen Metropolis is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Imperial Council with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.1 billion Copenhageners are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vega. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
Breastfeeding mothers are replacing smokers to loiter outside the workplace, graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, movies and computer games are strictly censored for violence, and military spending is on the increase. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Copenhagen Metropolis's national animal is the Elephant, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Krone.
