The Elected Monarchism of World Trade is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Monarch Elect with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avant-garde cinema, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.82 billion World Tradians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Elizabeth. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient World Tradean economy, worth 431 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 152,982 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Nihilistic thrill-seekers claim that suicide by roller coaster is the ultimate life experience, euthanasia is illegal, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. World Trade's national animal is the wild Prince Charles, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.
