|Animal||Leopard Appaloosa Horse|
The Free Communes of Appaloosa is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 688 million Appaloosans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hayagriva. The average income tax rate is 85.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Appaloosan economy, worth 73.5 trillion Labor Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 106,774 Labor Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The national security service are a bunch of crooks, the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Appaloosa's national animal is the Leopard Appaloosa Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
