“Achieving the Impossible”

Regional Influence: Auxiliary
The Celestial Empire of Mayane is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Marcellus van Mayane with an even hand, and renowned for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 4.475 billion Mayaneans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mayane β. The average income tax rate is 55%, 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.
The 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, and prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. Mayane's national animal is the Corvus corax, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Agnosticism, and its currency is the Mark.
