“Pecunia non olet”
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Regional Influence: Handshaker
Location: Capitalist Paradise
The United Federation of Plisskenstan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Andrew Jackson with a fair hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 15.243 billion Plisskenstanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thingamageek. The average income tax rate is 8%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Tourism and Retail.
Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, the nation leads Capitalist Paradise in per capita stalking, children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plisskenstan's national animal is the Chupacabra, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Sponk.
