“Onward and upward into the mist”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The North Pacific
The Fiefdom of Zzzaaa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Her Serene Highness Guinivere with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 10.246 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zzzaaa City. The average income tax rate is 4%, but much 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.
Education and welfare spending are on the rise, only adults may purchase violent video games, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Zzzaaa's radio stations. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Zzzaaa's national animal is the polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the florin.
