“Thus For Science”

Regional Influence: Minnow
The Grand Republic of Groundisred is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President René Leynaud with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed population of 6.4 billion Groundisredians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Law & Order receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veneum. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.
Schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Groundisred's national animal is the Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Crescenzoism, and its currency is the Gaerde.
