The Democratic Republic of Operahouse
“Listen to the Music of the Night”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Location: the South Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Democratic Republic of Operahouse is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Erik Destler with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, triple-decker prams, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.904 billion Operahouseans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Operahousean economy, worth 325 trillion Daae Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing and Soda Sales. Average income is 47,177 Daae Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, there's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Operahouse's national animal is the Phantom, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
