Regional Influence: Minnow
The Republic of Le Free Republic is a large, safe nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 76 million Le Free Republicians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 34.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Le Free Republician economy, worth 3.90 trillion picobucks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 51,256 picobucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, the latest political memes depict Leader as an overly-choreographed robot, and it turns out that money can buy you happiness. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Le Free Republic's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
