Regional Influence: Sprat
The Eternal Ranger of Karputsk is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by William Attlee with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.214 billion Karputskians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prutin. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.
The all-consuming Karputskian economy, worth a remarkable 3,374 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 128,721 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Pounds of property damage, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, and politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karputsk's national animal is the Philip, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
