Regional Influence: Vassal
The Queen's State of Kellestine is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Governor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 16.501 billion Kellestineans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever 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, socially-minded 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 68%, 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.
None has been named as Kellestine's national religion, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, and The Governor has just been declared ruler of Kellestine in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown. Kellestine's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is none, and its currency is the betale.
