The Republic of Kaleidescooptopia
“Nos Confido Rana”

Location: the South Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Republic of Kaleidescooptopia is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its digital currency, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 312 million Scooptopians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Scooptopian economy, worth 19.3 trillion Scoops a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 61,737 Scoops, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, and couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kaleidescooptopia's national animal is the frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
