The Federal Republic of Coldinia
“Strength Through People”
|Category: Liberal Democratic Socialists|
Regional Influence: Handshaker
The Federal Republic of Coldinia is a huge, genial nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic population of 245 million Coldinians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 61.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Coldinian economy, worth 5.72 trillion Coldins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 23,340 Coldins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nation is famous for bravely sending wave after wave of its soldiers until the enemy runs out of bullets, recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, government officials raid public buildings to remove all mention of G*d or r******n, and the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Coldinia's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
