Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Kingdom of Colligation is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Garnier IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 2.468 billion Colligationians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Garnier. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Colligationian economy, worth 353 trillion riels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 143,055 riels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, war criminals are given full state funerals, airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, and children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Colligation's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Catholicism.
