Regional Influence: Apprentice
Location: the Rejected Realms
The Flying Saucer of ThePlace is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Hoomin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.98 billion Wisconsinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Wisconsinian economy, worth 619 trillion buckets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,542 buckets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, gaping tourists take long-distance photos of diseased natives on "indigenous peoples" safari tours, the Wisconsinian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, and Hoomin's webseries about the alleged hauntings of ThePlace City generates millions of views. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ThePlace's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Passive Aggression.
