The Republic of Publica is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Anaya Lane with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.071 billion Publicans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oppida Prima. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Publican economy, worth a remarkable 2,533 trillion denarii 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 193,826 denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, the long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime is totally unknown. Publica's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
Publica is ranked 2,883rd in the world and 2nd in The Phoenix Imperium for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,005.39 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
