“High and Mighty”
|Category: Moralistic Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: the South Pacific
The Holy Empire of Zhelenitsa is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 1.669 billion Zhelenitsans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 22.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Zhelenitsan economy, worth 82.6 trillion Deqars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 49,514 Deqars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
Lonely people are supposed to be cheered up by the many parties that they are never invited to, contestants on Zhelenitsa's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and Leader's Twitcher account is typically used to share Zheleni Eagle memes rather than government policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zhelenitsa's national animal is the Zheleni Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
