The Republic of Caphrign is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 380 million Caphrignese 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Caphrignian economy, worth 16.2 trillion Caphrign Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 42,608 Caphrign Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, the endangered saltwater humpback Nurse Shark is only seen in captivity programs, and the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Caphrign. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caphrign's national animal is the Nurse Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
