The Grand Republic of Kilowatt
“Scientia potentia est”
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Regional Influence: Ambassador
The Grand Republic of Kilowatt is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Princeps Director Jean-Sébastien Miller with a fair hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.969 billion Kilowattians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Estrion. The average income tax rate is 88.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Kilowattian economy, worth a remarkable 4,337 trillion Pentes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 255,628 Pentes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
A common response to government PSAs is "well, DUH, obviously", parking's carefree without parking car fees, third world countries are rich in "I Love Estrion" t-shirts, and doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick. Crime is totally unknown. Kilowatt's national animal is the Kilowatt Great Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
