“Representing our Green and Pleasant Region to the World”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Illustriously Shiny Embassy of Wysterian Ambassadors is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 24.467 billion Embassy Staffers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Commerce. The average income tax rate is 10%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Automobile Manufacturing industry.
More and more students are taking up a career in medicine, airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Wysterian Ambassadors Blood Tithe, and citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Wysterian Ambassadors's national animal is the Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Hand of Friendship.
