Pays de Loire

Population694 million



The Independent Grand Dutchie of Pays de Loire is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 694 million Leriens 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 government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Madison-Kyrene. The average income tax rate is 52.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lere economy, worth 71.9 trillion britanicoes 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. 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 103,556 britanicoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Coastal cities are being moved a dozen miles inland to reduce flooding risk, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, the local custom of Biking With The Cars sends tourists home bemused or in body-bags, and the national security service are a bunch of crooks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Pays de Loire's national animal is the corgi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pays de Loire is ranked 13,843rd in the world and 419th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 82.05 on the Human Development Index.
