Location: the Rejected Realms

Regional Influence: Nipper


The Democratic Republic of Payne is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.015 billion Payneans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rotherhoff. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Paynean economy, worth 475 trillion beefcakes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,694 beefcakes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's economic policy is "sort it yourself", a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, and pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Payne's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Payne is ranked 65,282nd in the world and 1,416th in the Rejected Realms for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 1,866.64 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
