Regional Influence: Nipper


The Republic of Kortfarmare 289 is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, parental licensing program, and suspicion of poets. The devout population of 2.784 billion card farmers are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 40.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish card farming economy, worth 60.1 trillion cards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, Tourism, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 21,603 cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls, and lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kortfarmare 289's national animal is the farming, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kortfarmare 289 is ranked 56,095th in the world and 1,645th in the South Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 4.98 bananas ingested per day.
