The Commonwealth of Sowonia
“Salt is Salty”
|Category: Democratic Socialists|
Location: the South Pacific
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Commonwealth of Sowonia is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 438 million Sowonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Industry, and Defense also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sowonopolis. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Sowonian economy, worth 25.0 trillion Won a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,072 Won, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Sowonian democracy, the government has enacted freedom of information, prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, and the armed forces pride themselves on being conventional and predictable. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sowonia's national animal is the Red Giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
