Regional Influence: Apprentice
The Queen's State of Zymurgyhaven is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-working, democratic population of 19.148 billion Zymurgyhavenians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Welfare, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.6%.
The thriving Zymurgyhavenian economy, worth 917 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. Average income is 47,935 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 146,432 per year while the poor average 12,162, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.
Voting is voluntary and all tariffs have been abolished. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zymurgyhaven's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
