“We Will Endure”
|Category: Democratic Socialists|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Republic of Sockmanland is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 494 million Sockmanlandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Callipoli. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Sockmanlandian economy, worth 46.1 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,385 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof, and the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sockmanland's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
