“We need the funk”
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Star Fighters of Funkadelia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by P-Funk with a fair hand, and remarkable for its surprisingly youthful workforce, daily referendums, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.952 billion Funkadelians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Funky Nassau. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Funkadelic economy, worth 358 trillion Grooves a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 60,163 Grooves, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.
Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, surveillance cameras are banned, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and inheritance tax has recently been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Funkadelia's national animal is the Atomic Dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
