“Peace and Justice”
|Category: Democratic Socialists|
Location: The East Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Oppressed Peoples of Philville2 is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 427 million Philville2ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 53.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Philville2ian economy, worth 25.6 trillion kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 59,890 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
The police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, and online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Philville2. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Philville2's national animal is the penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
