“Te puedes dejar de aquí, pero nunca te puedes ir”

Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The Beach
The Infinite Republican Empire of The Rich Port is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Theotokos Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.65 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mute City. The average income tax rate is 66%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Book Publishing and Information Technology.
Much of The Rich Port's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, and the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. Crime is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Rich Port's national animal is the giant squid, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is the Observance Of The Great Spirit, and its currency is the simoleon.
