The Independent Confederation of The Navian Islands is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.105 billion Navians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Navers. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.
The powerhouse Navian economy, worth 97.4 trillion Navian Guilders a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is 88,163 Navian Guilders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 282,592 per year while the poor average 20,865, a ratio of 13.5 to 1.
The Navian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, rioting and unrest sweep the nation, and agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Navian Islands's national animal is the Sail Fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
