The People's Republic of Coventrinia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.315 billion Coventrinians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The large, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coventry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.7%.
The very strong Coventrinian economy, worth 117 trillion Crosses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 89,488 Crosses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 277,165 per year while the poor average 22,260, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.
Midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest Couguar hunting institutions, Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, and university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Coventrinia's national animal is the Couguar, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
