Regional Influence: Diplomat
The Libertarian Pirate Kingdom of Peteland is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by his imperial majesty the delegate with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.248 billion enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Imperial Palace. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Information Technology and Gambling.
Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, Peteland is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Peteland's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Dollar Sterling.
