The Federal Republic of Buxtehude
“Freedom for the People!”
|Category: Scandinavian Liberal Paradise|
Location: the Rejected Realms
Regional Influence: Newcomer
The Federal Republic of Buxtehude is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.224 billion Buxtehudeans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Buxtehudean economy, worth 78.5 trillion BuxCoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 35,291 BuxCoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, judges are rumored to find in favor of whoever bribes them the most, the government hopes austerity will lead to prosperity, and where there's a will there is usually a password manager. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Buxtehude's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
