LeaderJessica Hadfield


The Social Democratic Republic of Felscombe is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Jessica Hadfield with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.877 billion Felscombers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auckland. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Felscombe economy, worth a remarkable 2,034 trillion Joules a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 258,288 Joules, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, the military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, and there are no more heroes any more. Crime is totally unknown. Felscombe's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Felscombe is ranked 213th in the world and 4th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Inclusive, scoring 533.26 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
