“Once a Boat...Always a Boat”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: the West Pacific
The Keep on winning of Offshore Racing is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by High Executive Powerboat Racer with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.48 billion Offshore Racingians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carbon Fiber Hull. The average income tax rate is 80%, and even 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.
Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, citizens must pay to enjoy Offshore Racing's pristine beaches, and jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Offshore Racing's national animal is the Cheetah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Fuel.
