The Colony of Herringmore is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 252 million Herringmoreans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Herringmorean economy, worth 2.19 trillion kroners a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 8,677 kroners, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Herringmore's national animal is the herring, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
