“Praise The Dear Leader”
|Category: Moralistic Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: 10000 Islands
The Republic of Pickens Nation is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its public floggings, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 332 million Pickens Cultists are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small government prioritizes Industry, with Law & Order, Education, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 17.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Pickens Nationian economy, worth 39.1 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 117,644 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
The construction of massive skyscrapers seems to be the result of Pickens Nation's mid-life crisis, college athletes are arrested for selling lemonade, every workday begins with group therapy, and the new one Dollar coin also makes a handy throwing-star. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pickens Nation's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
