“Per Lucre Ad Astra”

Regional Influence: Minnow
The Nomadic Peoples of PepsiCo Space Projects is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.218 billion Pepsi-Spacer are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Law & Order, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6%. A robust private sector is led by the Gambling, Retail, and Soda Sales industries.
Voting is voluntary, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, the death penalty has been reintroduced, and televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events. Crime is a major problem. PepsiCo Space Projects's national animal is the eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its currency is the bottletop.
