Regional Influence: Sprat


The Holy Empire of Concorcadia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Head Councilman Jason learen with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.915 billion Concorcadians 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lindemann City. The average income tax rate is 59.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Concorcadian economy, worth 590 trillion Golden Dimes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 99,912 Golden Dimes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

You need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, the paparazzi publicize Royal scandals with the utmost delight, and politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Concorcadia's national animal is the winged Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lutheranism.

Concorcadia is ranked 18,019th in the world and 37th in Capitalist Paradise for Lowest Crime Rates, with 83.4 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
