“E pluribus unum”

Regional Influence: Minnow
The Republic of Corinthina is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Maria Lopez with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, democratic population of 8.164 billion Corinthinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The tiny, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Luxembourg. The average income tax rate is 8.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Corinthinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,120 trillion Bullions a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 137,203 Bullions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, and an IT mega-corporation has a patent pending on the rectangle. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Corinthina's national animal is the Brown bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.
