Regional Influence: Enforcer
The Republic of Rockiberg is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 276 million Rockibergians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The large, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rockmont. The average income tax rate is 50.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Rockibergian economy, worth 14.9 trillion ursoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,888 ursoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and children are expected to carve their own toys. Crime is totally unknown. Rockiberg's national animal is the black bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
