“Best One Standing” the Governor
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Handshaker
The Queen's State of Turin Piedmonte is a gargantuan, pleasant nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 22.969 billion Turin Piedmonteans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.5%.
The strong Turin Piedmontean economy, worth 641 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is 27,920 betales, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.
Graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, Turin Piedmonte has designated Capital Heights as its capital city, the Governor has just been declared ruler of Turin Piedmonte in an international press conference, and none has been named as Turin Piedmonte's national religion. Crime is moderate. Turin Piedmonte's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is none.
