“Powerful nations have no motto”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Freed Conservative Provinces of The Great Mid-North is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Thomas Urba with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 2.217 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Axwell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing.
The death penalty has been reintroduced, 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, and riots have broken out as a water shortage threatens The Great Mid-North's stability. 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 Northern United Churches of Christ, and its currency is the Charta.
