The Democratic Republic of Conteria
“Knowledge is the beacon of democracy”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Democratic Republic of Conteria is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Ganu with a fair hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.493 billion Conterians 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 Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Capitol. The average income tax rate is 57.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Conterian economy, worth 89.3 trillion Conteses a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,791 Conteses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
No personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet, and the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Conteria's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.
