The Republic of Cornered
“Twirling Toward Freedom”
|Category: Authoritarian Democracy|
Location: Confederacy of Libertarian Nations
Regional Influence: Duckspeaker
The Republic of Cornered is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its restrictive gun laws and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.977 billion Corneredians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 47.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Corneredian economy, worth 40.5 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 13,591 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Foreign lack of enthusiasm for Corneredian nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, and the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cornered's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
