“State Sovereignty & National Union”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: the South Pacific
|Leader||Kody J Remer|
The People's Republic of Illinoisan is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Kody J Remer with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 983 million Illini 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 Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Springfield. The average income tax rate is 41.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Illinican economy, worth 101 trillion Illini Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,089 Illini Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
The masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, the silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Illinican democracy, and the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Illinoisan's national animal is the Northern Cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
