Regional Influence: Minnow
The Holy Empire of Earth and Freedom is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Almighty Nathan with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 8.271 billion Earth and Freedomians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freedomnapolis. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Earth and Freedomian economy, worth 407 trillion Free dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 49,283 Free dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
The Almighty Nathan has just been declared ruler of Earth and Freedom in an international press conference, the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Earth and Freedom's national animal is the Blue Jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
