The Founding Father

LeaderPaul August


The Protectorate of The Founding Father is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Paul August with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 7.668 billion Founders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Founding Fatherian economy, worth 591 trillion Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,117 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, Founders refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and snap elections are called whenever there's a chance to increase Paul August's majority. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Founding Father's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Founding Father is ranked 138,365th in the world and 23rd in Empire of Great Britain for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -4.9 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
