The Democratic Confederation of Page is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Chandler Corentin with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.681 billion are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Commerce, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andryand. The average income tax rate is 72%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Gambling.
Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, abortions are routinely performed in Page's hospitals, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. Page's national animal is the ivory wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Arai'kyyln, and its currency is the stryyva.
