“Esse quam videri”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Sprat
Location: The East Pacific
The Federal Republic of States of Carolina is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 409 million States of Carolinans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raleigh. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant States of Carolinan economy, worth 10.0 trillion Pepsis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 24,456 Pepsis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties, neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, and young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. States of Carolina's national animal is the Cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
