“Salus populi suprema lex esto”

Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The East Pacific
The Grand Duchy of Reziel is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Elistar Reziel with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.449 billion Rezielians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Commerce receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Irem. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
The nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, artists are pillars of society, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Elistar Reziel's bedroom. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Reziel's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the erian.
