“PROPERTY OF MISTRESS WANDA”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Mz Wanda's Personal Fiefdom of Sidonis is a massive, genial nation, ruled by MISTRESS WANDA with a fair hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 3.718 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Equality and the Environment are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mistress Wanda's City. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.
Penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common, Sidonis's newly-famous raindances to summon storms instead attract tourists from all over Lazarus, and the government is spending billions of taxpayer dominion scrips to support the Tourism industry. Crime is totally unknown. Sidonis's national animal is the mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the dominion scrip.
