|Leader||Queen Oleander II|
The Allied States of Anowa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Oleander II with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 12.923 billion Anowans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terrenus. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Anowan economy, worth a remarkable 2,216 trillion Drachmas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 171,509 Drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
It can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, and gigantic marble churches take up almost half the land area of small villages. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anowa's national animal is the Gryphon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Anowan Pantheon.
