“Powerful nations have no motto”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The Independent Order
The Conservative Provinces of The Great Mid-North is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Rick Matthias with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.229 billion 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.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, the Environment, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Axwell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9%. 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.
All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, riots have broken out as a water shortage threatens The Great Mid-North's stability, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem. The Great Mid-North's national animal is the Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is The Northern United Churches of Christ, and its currency is the Northern Dollar.
