“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 notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 15.756 billion Plisskenstanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, with Social Policy and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thingamageek. The average income tax rate is 2.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Plisskenstanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,071 trillion Sponks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 194,970 Sponks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, and it's always rabbit season. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Plisskenstan's national animal is the Chupacabra, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
