The Principality of Sacal
“By The Sea, For The People”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Location: the South Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Principality of Sacal is a massive, genial nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.244 billion Sacalians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacalia. The average income tax rate is 60.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Sacalian economy, worth 127 trillion Shells a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 102,533 Shells, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, and lavish state dinners in Sacalia are the state's leading budgetary expenditure. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sacal's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
