Featured nation November 2018: Prymont

The United States of Prymont

"Progress for the People"

National Animal: Polar Bear

Currency: Prynd

For the very first time, a player has been elected twice. Prymont is a pillar of the Europan community, and over the last month, has continued the high-quality contributions that have elevated him to that status. The US of Prymont is ranked in the top 10 of Europa for law enforcement (7th), eco-friendliness (7), weather (8) and safety (10). A combination of concern for environmental and public safety make Prymont a welcoming place to live. That is: if you don't fall prey to polar bear attacks.

The United States of Prymont is a massive, safe nation, ruled by George Duval with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and smutty television. The quiet, industrious population of 3.823 billion Prymontians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Halsham. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Prymontian economy, worth 454 trillion Prynds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 118,887 Prynds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

George Duval has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, and adult magazines are having a sales resurgence as internet anonymity disappears. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Prymont's national animal is the Polar Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
