The Sweet Nuttiness of Almond Croissant
|Category: Liberal Democratic Socialists|
Regional Influence: Superpower
The Sweet Nuttiness of Almond Croissant is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 2.866 billion Almond Croissantians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 31.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Almond Croissantian economy, worth 23.7 trillion Almonds 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 black market in Woodchip Exports, Retail, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. 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 8,285 Almonds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Almond Croissant's national animal is the Deliciousness.
