“Root is God”
Regional Influence: Duckspeaker
The Freedom of TheSource is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by LEADER with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.557 billion TheSourceans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Commerce, with areas such as Defence and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CAPITAL. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Gambling and Book Publishing.
Euthanasia is legal, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and the land is famous throughout the region for its rampant lawlessness. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. TheSource's national animal is the ANIMAL, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is FAITH, and its currency is the CURRENCY.
