“A Time For It”
Regional Influence: Ambassador
The Queen's State of Panorama Ridge is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its smutty television, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 23.362 billion Panorama Ridgeans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.
The very strong Panorama Ridgean economy, worth 999 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 42,801 betales, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 256,580 per year while the poor average 3,236, a ratio of 79.3 to 1.
The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, Panorama Ridge's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, and Panorama Ridge is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Panorama Ridge's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
