Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Armed Republic of Novatore 472 is a massive, pleasant nation, notable for its ritual sacrifices, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.839 billion iconoclasts enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 12.7%.

The iconoclastic economy, worth 127 trillion spooks a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 44,839 spooks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", in court almost every witness is a hostile witness, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, and people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned. Crime is moderate. Novatore 472's national animal is the phantasm.

Novatore 472 is ranked 221,523rd in the world and 1,483rd in Teal Nation for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.87 bananas ingested per day.
