The Kingdom of Ant Superhero
|Category: Scandinavian Liberal Paradise|
Regional Influence: Nipper
The Kingdom of Ant Superhero is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Paul Rudd with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 6.255 billion Ant Superheroans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Francisco. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but underdeveloped Ant Superheroan economy, worth 123 trillion Ants a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 19,689 Ants, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, the constant playing of Merry Birthday on Ant Superheroan radio has led to calls for the song to be classified as a crime against humanity, a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ant Superhero's national animal is the Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
