Regional Influence: Minnow
The Protectorate of Rae is a massive, economically powerful nation, renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-working, intelligent population of 4.125 billion live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals devotes most of its attentions to Commerce, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Law & Order receiving almost no funds by comparison. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3%. A robust private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Woodchip Exports.
Rae's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, the tenet of free speech is held dear, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, and corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians. Crime is pervasive, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Rae's national animal is the white stallion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the crown royal gold.
