Regional Influence: Negotiator
The Federation of Whirl Islands is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Amira Paulini with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. Its compassionate population of 10.564 billion have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Healthcare, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Navel Island. The average income tax rate is 68%, and even higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets, the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, the government pours millions of Dollars into rehabilitation programs annually, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whirl Islands's national animal is the hawk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Roman Catholicism, and its currency is the Dollar.
