“Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war”
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Regional Influence: Vassal
The Incorporated States of Fortytipper is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Winston Wolfe with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 9.88 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals is mainly concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Defence are secondary priorities. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Tourism.
UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, nude art is becoming wildly popular, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fortytipper's national animal is the Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Ducket.
