“Opera Non Verba”
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Regional Influence: Hatchling
The Protectorate of Norrlands is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Vandroiy Sowuli with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.206 billion Norrgeri hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kuthburg. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Norrgeri economy, worth a remarkable 3,667 trillion credits 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 241,177 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Norrgeri weed picker are way up, government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, and primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit. Crime is totally unknown. Norrlands's national animal is the demon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Science.
