“Cooperation Creates Comfort”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Commonwealth of Conscientious Compeers is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 275 million Compeerians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Contouris. The average income tax rate is 41.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Compeerian economy, worth 19.1 trillion Chromes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,439 Chromes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, the police double as repo men, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, and seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Conscientious Compeers's national animal is the Caribou, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
