“The Wealth of Freedom”
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: Nordic Lands
The Capitalist Republic of Saiwania is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Helia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.937 billion Saiwanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saiwana. The average income tax rate is 40%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing industries.
A weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, procrastination is a national sport, tax rises are attributed to divine will, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saiwania's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its currency is the Saiwan.
