|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Hermit
Location: Mare Fortuna
The Grand Catholic Empire of La Asturiana is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 3.407 billion La Asturianans 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.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santa María de Colón. The average income tax rate is 25%. A large private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports industries.
The police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, and buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. La Asturiana's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Catholicism, and its currency is the Fortuna Dollar.
