Regional Influence: Superpower

|Leader||Archduke Mister Chris VI|
The Particularly Grand Duchy of Caffeinneburg is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Archduke Mister Chris VI with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, hatred of cheese, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 38.611 billion Caffeinneburgians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The relatively small government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Environment, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Public Transport receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caffeinneburg City. The average income tax rate is 16.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Caffeinneburgian economy, worth a remarkable 1,533 trillion orichalks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 39,707 orichalks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, the government is spending billions of taxpayer orichalks to support the Uranium Mining industry, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, and Caffeinneburg's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caffeinneburg's national animal is the alzabo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
