Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Republic of Estandarte is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 719 million estandarteans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buena Vista. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.0%.

The frighteningly efficient estandartean economy, worth 89.6 trillion Estandars a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,601 Estandars, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, hospitals in Estandarte are too busy serving the needs of The South Atlantic to see estandarteans, and the military will start wars with other nations on a lark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Estandarte's national animal is the Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Estandarte is ranked 97,156th in the world and 2nd in The South Atlantic for Most Politically Free, scoring 60.38 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
