“On an endless wandering”
|Category: Liberal Democratic Socialists|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Republic of Spindrifter is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.618 billion Spindrifterians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Social Welfare, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Law & Order receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 45%, but much higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Book Publishing.
Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control. Spindrifter's national animal is the stray cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the shilling.
