The Commonwealth of Second Provania
“Make mine a Double”
|Category: Scandinavian Liberal Paradise|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Commonwealth of Second Provania is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Donelda del Wapello with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 901 million Provanians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puerto de La Santa Dolores. The average income tax rate is 84.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Provanian economy, worth 78.9 trillion Becks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 87,565 Becks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Prime Minister Donelda del Wapello is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Prime Minister Donelda del Wapello to meetings with foreign heads of state, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Second Provania's national animal is the Common Black Hatcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
