“To Each According to His Need”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Hermit
Location: Cooperative of Liberal States
The Unified Departments of Winter Brault is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Department of National Affairs with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.791 billion Winter Braultians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Social Welfare and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tous Egaux. The average income tax rate is 75%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.
Commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, nudity is frowned upon, and surveillance cameras are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Winter Brault's national animal is the Fire Ferret, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Cent.
