“Home Town Girl”
|Category: Tyranny by Majority|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: Ancient Lands
The Republic of Rodeo Girl is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its strong anti-business politics. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 11.644 billion enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 55%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
An underground movement of cigarette smokers has sprung up in response to a government ban, families are only permitted to have one child, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, and otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rodeo Girl's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the dollar.
