The Commonwealth of Vauquelin
|Category: Left-Leaning College State|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Commonwealth of Vauquelin is a colossal, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 5.509 billion Vauquelians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Healthcare, although Education, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Vauquelian economy, worth 226 trillion livres a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Soda Sales. Average income is 41,031 livres, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, Vauquelin's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vauquelin's national animal is the phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
