“Pax et Mala”
Regional Influence: Eminence Grise
The Republic of Cotdelapoms is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Jarvis Coquerique with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.734 billion live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albionpool. The average income tax rate is 73%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
Museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "Love and peace!" as a way of life, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Cotdelapoms's national animal is the Ours Polaire, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Dollar.
