Cumberland and the Red River

Population2.818 billion

LeaderPresident Esther Jackson

AnimalWhite-Tailed Deer

The Republic of Cumberland and the Red River is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Esther Jackson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.818 billion Southerners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raleigh. The average income tax rate is 36.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Southern economy, worth 263 trillion Ameroes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 93,459 Ameroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, a popular Southern saying is 'wishing upon a fallen jet engine', racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle, and the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Cumberland and the Red River's national animal is the White-Tailed Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cumberland and the Red River is ranked 200,379th in the world and 7,284th in Osiris for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -8.94 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
