“People Before Profit”
|Category: Left-wing Utopia|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Commonwealth of Indulgence and Ecstasy is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 3.392 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
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 Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 70%, and even higher for the wealthy. A healthy private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Military funding has been stripped back, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime is relatively low. Indulgence and Ecstasy's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Euro.
