The United Federal Republic of Courletnia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by WS Antoniette with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.037 billion Courletnians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Necrington Urbs. The average income tax rate is 50.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Courletnian economy, worth 87.6 trillion Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 84,514 Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
The government is a law unto itself, elected officials often serve for decades in a single term, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and WS Antoniette has just been declared ruler of Courletnia in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown. Courletnia's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
