“You Can't Stop Progress”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: the South Pacific
The Constitutional Monarchy of Peskorea is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its digital currency, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 719 million Peskoreans 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 Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pesqueria. The average income tax rate is 54.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Peskorean economy, worth 92.2 trillion Won a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,187 Won, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Pesqueria, being impolite in public is punishable by heavy fines, and the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Peskorea's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
