Regional Influence: Sprat


The Matriarchy of Pen Wareremedince is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Mother with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, compulsory vegetarianism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.223 billion Pen Wareremedinceans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Pen Wareremedincean economy, worth 136 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 111,385 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, if foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to Pen Wareremedince, the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods, and the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pen Wareremedince's national animal is the emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pantheism.

Pen Wareremedince is ranked 81,385th in the world and 569th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Drug Use, scoring 80.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
