“Capitalism, Freedom, Equality”
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Free Land of Eastern Apalstan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Does-Nothing-A-Lot with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.07 billion Eastern Apalstanians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ApalVille. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.0%.
The all-consuming Eastern Apalstanian economy, worth 268 trillion ApalVs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 129,839 ApalVs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 598,537 per year while the poor average 17,037, a ratio of 35.1 to 1.
Brazen mayors claim official expenses to pay for their drug habits, fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding", political gridlock ensues as even the most innocuous legislation is vetoed by the Supreme Court for potential civil rights violations, and nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Eastern Apalstan's national animal is the Bulldog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Money.
