Regional Influence: Vassal
The Riocht Dleathach of Fenian Provinces is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sam Adams with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 12.086 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aosta. The average income tax rate is 37%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Information Technology and Gambling.
Anti-government web sites are springing up, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. Fenian Provinces's national animal is the osprey, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the póca.
