Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The People's Federation of Mitroland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lorenzo Biscuitbarrel with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.647 billion Mitrolandians 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 medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sarieigo. The average income tax rate is 42.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Mitrolandian economy, worth 181 trillion Credits 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, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. 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 68,697 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mitroland's national animal is the Mitrlandic Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.
