“I Vow to Thee My Empress”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Diplomat
Location: Nova Istalia
The Forgotten Empire of The Blossom Provinces is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Queen-Empress Catherine XXIV with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The compassionate, hard-working population of 8.03 billion The Blossom Provincesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Aurora. The average income tax rate is 76%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Tourism and Book Publishing.
The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, and parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Blossom Provinces's national animal is the bottle-nosed dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, its national religion is the Church of England, and its currency is the Blossomian Merit.
