Regional Influence: Vassal
The Holy Empire of Earth and Freedom is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its devotion to social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.81 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, the Environment, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control, 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Free dollars.
