“Life Death and the Nutter way of life (for Dante)”
|Category: Compulsory Consumerist State|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Rejected of Gettersburg is a colossal, devout nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.089 billion are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iron Strom. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74%. 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.
A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, the government is seen to favor Catholics, conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors, and airport security is provided by private companies. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gettersburg's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Kharijite, and its currency is the Pound.
