The Federation of Platinum Awards is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its burgeoning Zebra population. The quiet, industrious population of 783 million Platinum Awardsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 21.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Platinum Awardsian economy, worth 32.2 trillion Trophies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,172 Trophies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Platinum Awards's national animal is the Zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
