Regional Influence: Hermit
The Queen's State of Richard Saunders is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.695 billion Richard Saundersians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14%. A substantial private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Beef-Based Agriculture and Trout Farming.
The tenet of free speech is held dear, surveillance cameras are banned, Richard Saunders's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is a serious problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Richard Saunders's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its currency is the betale.
