The Free Land of Rosemite
“Be here now.”
|Category: Scandinavian Liberal Paradise|
Regional Influence: Newcomer
The Free Land of Rosemite is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tinkerbell with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 1.285 billion Rosemiteans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Leprechaun Valley. The average income tax rate is 65.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Rosemitean economy, worth 41.4 trillion seeds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 32,234 seeds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, schoolyard bullying has a tendency to escalate, and sex changes are routinely performed at Rosemite's hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Rosemite's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
