“Una in diversitate”
|Category: Scandinavian Liberal Paradise|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Kingdom of Palisede is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Anderson Eidsvolle with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.733 billion Palisedeans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vincent. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Palisedean economy, worth a remarkable 1,606 trillion Palisedean dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,924 Palisedean dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Banana distribution among collective farm workers is an important topic in public discourse, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, parents dread their examinations more than their children, and government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Palisede's national animal is the Gondoan Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
