The Holy Green Empire of Deidre Skye is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gaia Nick with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 14.704 billion Deidre Skyeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 10.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Deidre Skyean economy, worth a remarkable 1,398 trillion coconuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 95,100 coconuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Monkeys are frequently shot for looking at people 'in a funny way', citizens are expected to be armed at all times, eminent domain has been abolished, and the nation's image rights are the strictest in the world. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Deidre Skye's national animal is the monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
