Regional Influence: Diplomat
The Socialist Federal Republic of Aner is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Pierre Lorenz with a fair hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.667 billion Anerians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Anerian economy, worth 131 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 78,753 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, voting district maps are said to resemble a tyrannosaurus eating the capital, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aner's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is atheism.
