The Republic of Shengtie is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 487 million Shengtiens are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Coton. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Shengtien economy, worth 39.9 trillion crowns 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 major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 81,957 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shengtie's national animal is the condor, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
