The Empire of Pennsylvania2
“A day without laughter is a day wasted”
Location: Southeastern Northwessussex
Regional Influence: Powerbroker
The Empire of Pennsylvania2 is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Henry H Jenkins with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.424 billion Pennsylvania2ians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fyrland City. The average income tax rate is 66.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Pennsylvania2ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,054 trillion Pensletes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 194,356 Pensletes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
Bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and Pennsylvania2 has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories. Crime is totally unknown. Pennsylvania2's national animal is the Jaguar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Zixcohadew.
