“A solitudine, libertatem”
|Category: Capitalist Paradise|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Dominion of Potestasia is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 309 million Potestasians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.4%.
The very strong Potestasian economy, worth 16.8 trillion Guilds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 54,258 Guilds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 249,765 per year while the poor average 7,138, a ratio of 35.0 to 1.
Smoking is banned in public areas, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, and wanting a better life for your child is prohibited by a clause in the criminal code. Crime is moderate. Potestasia's national animal is the Gryphon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
