The Grand Principality of Corsithia
“One Nation, One Crown, One Corsithia.”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Grand Principality of Corsithia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Crown Prince Nicholas Thane with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, devout population of 4.141 billion Corsithians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ville d'Ys. The average income tax rate is 35.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Corsithian economy, worth 688 trillion crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Retail, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 166,182 crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
The parliament building has installed a revolving door, terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests, etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', and state officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute Crown Prince Nicholas Thane's portrait. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corsithia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
