“Together on Our Own”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: the West Pacific
The Commonwealth of Coriolis is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Boreas with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 3.197 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Espiral. The average income tax rate is 86%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
Innocent defendants often plea guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, nine out of ten citizens of Coriolis answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers, and the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Coriolis's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Maravedi.
