The Republic of Sol Norcustt
“We were, we are, we will be”
|Category: Democratic Socialists|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Republic of Sol Norcustt is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 671 million Norcusttians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solaris. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Sol Norcusttian economy, worth 63.7 trillion qŁarks 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 Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 94,866 qŁarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, some electoral districts are without a representative as they are stuck with perpetual revotes, and the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sol Norcustt's national animal is the Fenix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
