The Queen's State of Covenancy is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Governor with an even hand, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate population of 27.089 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 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Covenancyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,014 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 74,356 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, businesses have become paranoid as waves of lawsuits sweep the nation, politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. 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.
