The Constitutional Monarchy of Nethertopia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Pieter van Delta with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 12.42 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, Social Welfare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Peregrinus City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Tourism and Arms Manufacturing.
Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, the fastest growing demographic of porn viewership is twelve to seventeen, lending firms are subject to strict government regulations, and copyright laws have been abolished. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nethertopia's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Golden Sovereign.
