“The long view of justice for a healthy happy society”
|Category: Liberal Democratic Socialists|
Regional Influence: Sprat
Location: The North Pacific
The United States of Menzaba is a huge, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 631 million Menzabans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Menzaban economy, worth 16.7 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 26,416 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, the well-to-do in The North Pacific are never on time for important appointments, posters on 'Menzaban Values' advise against being proud of Menzaba, and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Menzaba's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
