The Commonwealth of Contamania is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 639 million Contamans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 20.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Contamanian economy, worth 35.2 trillion Snakers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,128 Snakers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
The silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Contamanian democracy, couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Contamania's national animal is the Crab, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.
