“It's a RUM business”
|Category: Left-Leaning College State|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Keg-parachuting Cargo Planes of SkyRUM is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Baba Rum Dass with an even hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.742 billion SkyRUMmies enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SkyRUM City. The average income tax rate is 53%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Information Technology.
UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, military funding has been stripped back, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown. SkyRUM's national animal is the Flying St Bernard, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Floating Keg.
