The United Socialist States of Protadaros is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 3.51 billion Protadarosians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 49.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Protadarosian economy, worth 67.5 trillion Universal Pols a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 19,219 Universal Pols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Protadaros's national animal is the Man, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
