“Power to the People”
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
|Leader||President Edward Orbavaman|
The Republic of The Stratosphere Islands is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Edward Orbavaman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.199 billion Stratosphereans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Del Faisán. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Stratosphere Islandsian economy, worth 150 trillion Stratosphere Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 125,264 Stratosphere Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Stratosphere Islandsian scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack, the new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, and international collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through The Stratosphere Islands. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Stratosphere Islands's national animal is the Golden Pheasant, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.
