“For What It Should Be”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Queen's State of Janice Mac is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.389 billion Janice Macians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3%. A healthy private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Trout Farming and Door-to-door Insurance Sales.
Gambling is outlawed, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, military funding has been stripped back, and the government is avowedly atheist. Crime is a major problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Janice Mac's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its currency is the betale.
