The Republic of Charming Strain
“Pride and Industry”
|Category: Moralistic Democracy|
Location: The Republican Kingdoms of Europe
Regional Influence: Duckspeaker
The Republic of Charming Strain is a massive, genial nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate population of 3.572 billion Charming Strainians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 38.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Charming Strainian economy, worth 209 trillion pesos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,553 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Charming Strain's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
