Regional Influence: Minnow
The Peaceful Autocracy of Morndul is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President-for-life Henry Jacob Mortiman with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.565 billion enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.
The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, pro-business morass -- devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and the Environment receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montepellico. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing industries.
Young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, and streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious problem. Morndul's national animal is the Snail, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Upper Pound.
