Regional Influence: Negotiator
The Oudste Stad van Nederland of Nimega is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hubert Bruls with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 16.288 billion Nijmegenaren are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gemeentehuis. The average income tax rate is 96%. 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.
Coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, major cities are suffering under water rationing, politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, and the nation has an international reputation for compassion. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Nimega's national animal is the Kraker, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the silver coin.
