The Adois Amigo's of Sentimental Journey is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Nyame with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.031 billion Sentimental Journeyians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Environment, with Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Timbuktoo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.5%.
The strong Sentimental Journeyian economy, worth 111 trillion pennies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 36,629 pennies, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.
Foreigners are treated with great suspicion, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, and customs turn away those considered to have an unfavourable ethnicity. Crime is moderate. Sentimental Journey's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cosmology.
