The Kingdom of VonJake
“But first, brunch.”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Location: the South Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Kingdom of VonJake is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Her Holiness VonRachael with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working population of 6.569 billion VonJakeans 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 large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming VonJakean economy, worth 615 trillion Deutsche Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 93,708 Deutsche Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators, getting milk from the local corner store no longer requires donning advanced hiking gear, and there's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. VonJake's national animal is the German Shepherd, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
