Regional Influence: Ambassador
The Westphalian Reich of The House of Petain is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.182 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Augustine. The average income tax rate is 51%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Tourism.
Elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Westphalian Frank mansions, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined. Crime is well under control. The House of Petain's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the Westphalian Frank.
