The Grand Theft Auto of Offshore Racing is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by High Executive Powerboat Racer with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 6.752 billion 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, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carbon Fiber Hull. The average income tax rate is 79%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Smoking is banned in public areas, jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. 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.
