The Queen's State of Covenancy is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cynical population of 26.882 billion Covenancyians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Covenancyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,009 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 74,750 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, the citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, and businesses have become paranoid as waves of lawsuits sweep the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Covenancy's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is none.
