“From Many, One”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Incorporated States of Losiste is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.396 billion Losisteans 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 54.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Losistean economy, worth 194 trillion Golds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 139,406 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There are no more heroes any more, pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, trying to toast marshmallows in an electric fireplace just isn't the same, and the election for Empress's office's janitor is heating up. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Losiste's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
