|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Location: the South Pacific
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Republic of Carnoustie is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by CaptainObi with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.486 billion Carnoustieans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carnoustie City. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Carnoustiean economy, worth 213 trillion bitcoins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,992 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Carnoustie is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, and literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Carnoustie's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular.
