The Republic of Legio V Paterna
“Senatus Populusque Romanus”
|Category: Left-Leaning College State|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Republic of Legio V Paterna is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 3.995 billion Legio V Paternans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 54.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but inefficient Legio V Paternan economy, worth 118 trillion Denarii a year, is quite specialized and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 29,695 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Legio V Paterna's national animal is the Centaur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
