Regional Influence: Minnow
The Holy Empire of Earth and Freedom is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by The Almighty Nathan with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. Its hard-nosed population of 6.615 billion 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freedomnapolis. The average income tax rate is 69%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.
Postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, The Almighty Nathan has just been declared ruler of Earth and Freedom in an international press conference, and the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 dollar.
