Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Queen's State of Covenancy is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 24.35 billion Covenancyians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 85.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Covenancyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,815 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 Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 74,574 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. 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.

Covenancy is ranked 1st in Ancient Lands and 7,298th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 83 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
