The Community of Great Portland is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its national health service and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 320 million Great Portlandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 24.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Great Portlandian economy, worth 12.5 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,973 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
All statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, citizens select which government department gets their income tax dollars each year, severed limbs litter woodland edges across the land, and the national anthem is a rather effective sleeping aid. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Portland's national animal is the Grizzly bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
