“Scientia potentia est”

Regional Influence: Power
The Federal Republic of New New Capston is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its hatred of cheese. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 4.289 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.
The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- devotes most of its attentions to the Environment, with areas such as Defence and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cadmia. The average income tax rate is 39%, but much 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.
New New Capston has designated Cadmia as its capital city. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New New Capston's national animal is the Pokemon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Gold.
