LeaderThe Man behind the Curtain


The Republic of Cinnibar is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Man behind the Curtain with an even hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.445 billion Clydes enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liberty. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Clydic economy, worth a remarkable 1,933 trillion Nils a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,587 Nils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation, 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cinnibar's national animal is the Stallion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Cinnibar is ranked 15,241st in the world and 408th in The North Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 7,469.81 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
