The Queen's State of Rotuma Island is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 20.893 billion Rotuma Islandians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but stagnant Rotuma Islandian economy, worth 104 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 5,008 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Surveillance cameras are banned, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and Rotuma Island has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rotuma Island's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
