The Republic of Card-Chives V
Location: The East Pacific
Regional Influence: Hatchling
The Republic of Card-Chives V is a very large, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 124 million Card-Chives Vians 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Education, Public Transport, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.3%.
The strong Card-Chives Vian economy, worth 5.18 trillion Bitcoins a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 41,741 Bitcoins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 269,024 per year while the poor average 2,616, a ratio of 102 to 1.
Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Card-Chives V's national animal is the Robot, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
