“All Hail the great and powerful Ziggie from Nantucket”
|Category: Compulsory Consumerist State|
Regional Influence: Power
Location: Monkey Island
The Eminent Domain of Ziggie Valencourt is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ziggie the Great with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18.749 billion are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ziggie City. The average income tax rate is 68%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Uranium Mining.
Government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, religious education is a new government priority, mobile phone masts are being erected all over the country, and dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ziggie Valencourt's national animal is the flaming flamingo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the flamingo dropping.
