|Leader||Chancellor Jörg Bauer|
The Federal Socialist Republic of East Shancia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Jörg Bauer with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.122 billion Shancians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kinengrad NCR. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Shancian economy, worth 131 trillion Stratnes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 117,579 Stratnes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, elections have recently been reintroduced to East Shancia, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and euthanasia is legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Shancia's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Marxism-Leninism.
