“The Big Apple”
|Category: Left-Leaning College State|
Regional Influence: Instigator
The United States of Noordeinde is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Jonathan Roosevelt with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.754 billion Noordeindeans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Hague. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Noordeindean economy, worth a remarkable 2,565 trillion Guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 201,171 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Nude art is becoming wildly popular, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, highschool principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, and extreme political groups are outlawed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noordeinde's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
