“Knowledge is the beacon of democracy”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Democratic Republic of Conteria is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.217 billion Conterians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 46.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Conterian economy, worth 80.4 trillion conteses a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 66,032 conteses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Conteria's national animal is the falcon.
