|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Location: the Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Federal Republic of Ameridinium is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the people with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.647 billion Ameridinians 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ameridinium City. The average income tax rate is 52.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Ameridiniumian economy, worth 139 trillion Ameridinian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,794 Ameridinian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Political candidates who don't release their birth certificates are presumed to have been born in Maxtopia, a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, atheism is seen as a prerequisite for political power, and tourists are forbidden to enter Native Ameridiniumian lands. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ameridinium's national animal is the Ameridinian Bird, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularist.
