LeaderThe Man behind the Curtain


The Republic of Cinnibar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Man behind the Curtain with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.52 billion Clydes have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Clydic economy, worth a remarkable 1,623 trillion Nils a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,643 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 5,613th in the world and 258th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 14,163.93 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
