The Actian State of TheGoldCoast is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.079 billion Actians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darwin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.6%.
The powerhouse Actian economy, worth 97.1 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is 89,974 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 368,152 per year while the poor average 14,548, a ratio of 25.3 to 1.
Psychological disorders are a taboo subject, TheGoldCoast has designated Darwin as its capital city, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, and prohibition has allowed a Maxtopian immigrant known only as "Nipples" to establish an illicit breast milk syndicate. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. TheGoldCoast's national animal is the Gold Gull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
