Regional Influence: Minnow
The Holy Ketchup States of Vivedin is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Aleyah Madensay with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 2.055 billion Vivedinians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.
The tiny, liberal, pro-business government concentrates mainly on Commerce, although Education and Healthcare are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mr Happy's Fun Land. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Gambling industries.
Thousands of cute furry kittens are trampling everything in their path (Vivedin has found 2 easter eggs), citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, and euthanasia is legal. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Vivedin's national animal is the walrus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, its national religion is Jasdin, and its currency is the ketchup cent.
