“Pushing the frontier for every obstacle one at a time”

Regional Influence: Duckspeaker
Location: The Coalition of Democratic Nations
The United Territories of Komminland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by National Director with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic, cheerful population of 10.119 billion Komminlanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thildur. The average income tax rate is 91.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Kommin economy, worth a remarkable 1,675 trillion Genamurs a year, is fairly diversified and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 165,591 Genamurs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.
Collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', bike rage is all the rage, and restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Komminland. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Komminland's national animal is the Vulpes lagopus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
