“Freedom of the individual through the masses”
|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Location: The East Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Democratic Republic of East Peatteo is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.129 billion East Peatteoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming East Peatteoan economy, worth 123 trillion powents a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 109,451 powents, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in East Peatteo, crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, and asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Peatteo's national animal is the crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
