“Unity, Understanding, Compassion”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The East Pacific
The Principality of Costa Celestia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Her Royal Highness Queen Cassiopiea with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.416 billion Costa Celestians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prucan City. The average income tax rate is 88.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Costa Celestian economy, worth 437 trillion Celestian Drachmas a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Tourism industry. Average income is 51,963 Celestian Drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
The government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and people are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Costa Celestia's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Wicca.
