“The Land of Equality”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Republic of Catierro is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.329 billion Catierroans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catierro. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Catierroan economy, worth a remarkable 1,202 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 164,142 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, replacement organs are grown in vats, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', and crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Catierro's national animal is the Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
