The United Republic of AngusEssa is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gerolan II with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.771 billion AngusEssans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The medium-sized government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nottawasaga. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming AngusEssan economy, worth 693 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,248 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Lending money has become a major liability, school kids who pretend to drive imaginary cars get a social worker and a police observer assigned to them, movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens, and there's no such thing as bad publicity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. AngusEssa's national animal is the Beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
