Regional Influence: Minnow

Location: Urbanites


The Republic of Spindrifter is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.943 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.

Spindrifter is ranked 3rd in Urbanites and 38,340th in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 21 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
