Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Empire of Chowda is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.164 billion Chows 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 Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jamwurl. The average income tax rate is 48.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Chowdan economy, worth 91.9 trillion Chows a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,950 Chows, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, in the Beginning was the Word and the Word was "Pragmatism", and internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Chowdan weed picker are way up. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Chowda's national animal is the Jamaican Brown Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Chowda is ranked 60,946th in the world and 2,902nd in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 17.03 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
