“Die Gedanken sind frei, Wer kann sie erraten?”Karoline XII Karling
|Category: Scandinavian Liberal Paradise|
Regional Influence: Negotiator
The Empire of Unicario is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Karoline XII Karling with an even hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 11.234 billion Asgardians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hohenberg. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.
The large but inefficient Asgardian economy, worth 772 trillion Marks a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,774 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Cars are banned, discarded pennies litter the streets, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Unicario's national animal is the raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Germanic.
