Cape Canaveral

The Nomadic Peoples of Cape Canaveral is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 20.431 billion Cape Canaveralians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mission Control. The average income tax rate is 65.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Cape Canaveralian economy, worth a remarkable 1,027 trillion O2s a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,284 O2s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government is avowedly atheist, all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Mission Control, billions of O2s are being poured into a space program, and the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cape Canaveral's national animal is the rover, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cape Canaveral is ranked 165,455th in the world and 30th in Florida for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.17 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
