The Theocracy of Renascento is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-working, cynical population of 984 million Renascentines are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.6%.
The thriving Renascentine economy, worth 73.7 trillion golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 74,927 golds, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.
Burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, and seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Renascento's national animal is the swallow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
