“Pecunia non olet”
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Regional Influence: Handshaker
Location: Capitalist Paradise
The United Federation of Plisskenstan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Andrew Jackson with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 14.691 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail industries.
Citizens must pay to enjoy Plisskenstan's pristine beaches, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, the nation leads Capitalist Paradise in per capita stalking, and children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies. 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.
