The Republic of Libertarian Washington is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Benjamin Franklin with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, hatred of cheese, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 10.34 billion Libertarian Washingtonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libertarian Franklin. The average income tax rate is 42.9%.
The all-consuming Libertarian Washingtonian economy, worth 661 trillion Gold Standards a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. Average income is 63,968 Gold Standards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.
The new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, and government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Libertarian Washington's national animal is the King Cobra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Freedom of Choice.
