“Our country ( Puppet Of Jamlan)”
|Category: Corporate Bordello|
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Lanian Republic of Eastern Waters is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Andy Dalton with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.237 billion Eastern Watersians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trainton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.9%.
The very strong Eastern Watersian economy, worth 303 trillion lans a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 57,976 lans, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 243,939 per year while the poor average 8,941, a ratio of 27.3 to 1.
Military spending is on the increase, Eastern Waters has designated Trainton as its capital city, Andy Dalton has just been declared ruler of Eastern Waters in an international press conference, and a major religion has been named as Eastern Waters's national religion. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Eastern Waters's national animal is the penguin, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.
