“Be more like seaslugs”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Kingdom of Leewood is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.27 billion Leeweeds 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Leewood economy, worth 101 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 80,004 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, Leewood's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, and laborers are building walls and making Wezeltonia pay for it. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leewood's national animal is the nudibranch, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
