The Free Commonwealth of Greater Tern
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Location: the South Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Free Commonwealth of Greater Tern is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prętor Sayuri Tähtinen with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 17.867 billion Ternans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ittermory. The average income tax rate is 71.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ternan economy, worth a remarkable 5,742 trillion Golden Quills a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 321,430 Golden Quills, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Ittermory, and traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers. Crime is totally unknown. Greater Tern's national animal is the Hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Tsukuyomism.
