“Straight, Longcut. All Day”
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The Great American Union
The Free Land of Skoalstraightius is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Le Dude with a fair hand, and notable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.653 billion Skoalstraightiusians 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Right Lip Dip. The average income tax rate is 97%. 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.
'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Skoalstraightius's radio stations, Skoalstraightius's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, extreme political groups are outlawed, and the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Skoalstraightius's national animal is the longcut deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the can.
Skoalstraightius is ranked 46th in The Great American Union and 93,548th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 25 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
