Regional Influence: Powerbroker
The Republic of Kyupaa is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Winterlady with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 25.146 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ivdisha. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.
A new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, and euthanasia is legal. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kyupaa's national animal is the porcupine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the chalice.
