“Adapt. Imporvise. Overcome.”
|Category: Moralistic Democracy|
Regional Influence: Dominator
Location: The North Republic of Brotherhood
The Empire of Captopcond is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. The democratic population of 149 million Captopcondians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 27.8%.
The sizeable but inefficient Captopcondian economy, worth 6.59 trillion bitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,255 bitcoins, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.
Model railroad hobbyists have taken to muscling model shipbuilders off their "turf", people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, the government tries not to listen to the people unless it absolutely has to, and much of Captopcond's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Captopcond's national animal is the owl, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.
