The Commonwealth of Sicheriff
“Vive le shérif!”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Commonwealth of Sicheriff is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 348 million Sichers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 27.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Sicheriffian economy, worth 20.3 trillion Suchiors a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 58,219 Suchiors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
The tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, foreign football clubs wave the Sicheriffian flag before every game, and power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sicheriff's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
