“Pride and Industry”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: the South Pacific
The Republic of Romon Islaco is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 223 million Romon Islacoans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 34.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Romon Islacoan economy, worth 6.85 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 30,696 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Romon Islaco City to enjoy their national art, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, churches across the land are hurriedly installing auto-tune for their choirs, and homophobia is off the menu. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Romon Islaco's national animal is the eagle.
