“Libertad o Muerte!”
|Category: Scandinavian Liberal Paradise|
Regional Influence: Dominator
Location: Soviet Union
The Borderlands of Western Barhar is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 10.603 billion enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Defence. The average income tax rate is 99%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, politicians are to be found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and property values in suburbs have nosedived after the middle class were forced to live next door to ethnic minorities. Crime is totally unknown. Western Barhar's national animal is the prancing tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the xi.
