“We Rise As Our Own”

Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: 10000 Islands
The Senatorial Triumvirate of Gitchie Manito is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The Council of Three Fires with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.16 billion Manitans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Michilimackinac. The average income tax rate is 71%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
Cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, children are raised bilingual from an early age, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. Gitchie Manito's national animal is the Otter, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is unofficial, and its currency is the Bawazigaywin.
