The Republic of Praestania
“To the skies!”
|Category: Democratic Socialists|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Republic of Praestania is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Kayid with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed population of 983 million Praestans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stolitse. The average income tax rate is 64.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Praestan economy, worth 124 trillion Fenrongs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 126,464 Fenrongs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Kayid's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, spies caught in Praestania are never heard from again, the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, and Propaganda and Partisanship 101 is a required class all political candidates must pass before being nominated by their chosen party. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Praestania's national animal is the White Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
