“E pluribus unum”
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Republic of Corinthina is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Maria Lopez with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.408 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Luxembourg. The average income tax rate is 56%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, the rich are forced to sell their cars to pay for more police to prevent their cars from being stolen, voting is voluntary, and corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Corinthina's national animal is the Brown bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is none, and its currency is the Bullion.
