Regional Influence: Eminence Grise


The Shogunate of Suternia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Meishō with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 8.773 billion Suternians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sutelinia. The average income tax rate is 14.5%.

The all-consuming Suternian economy, worth 954 trillion Suters a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 108,769 Suters, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Passengers often cause a stink on public transport, directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Sutelinia as a backdrop, stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, and engaged partners detail their fiancés' private lives in detail to prurient bureaucrats. Crime is totally unknown. Suternia's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shintoism.

Suternia is ranked 103,215th in the world and 7th in New Western Atlantic for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,176.95 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
