“The Rum's on Me”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Vassal
Location: The North Pacific
The Salty Dogs of Great Bights Mum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-working, democratic population of 22.152 billion Great Bights Mumians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized government prioritizes Welfare, although Environment, Defense, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Public Transport are ignored. The average income tax rate is 56.6%.
The strong Great Bights Mumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,040 trillion coupons a year, is driven entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 46,979 coupons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
Referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, artists are pillars of society, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and euthanasia is illegal. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Bights Mum's national animal is the whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
