The Colony of Crinan Canal is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 10.079 billion Crinan Canalians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 54.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but underdeveloped Crinan Canalian economy, worth 250 trillion inzils a year, is quite specialized and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 24,841 inzils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, voting is compulsory, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crinan Canal's national animal is the water vole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
