Regional Influence: Nipper
The Federated National Township of Zwergschnauzer is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 24.753 billion Schnauzervolken hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Industry, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.8%.
The very strong Schnauzervolk economy, worth a remarkable 1,192 trillion schnauzermarks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 48,170 schnauzermarks, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.
The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, the government is reining in public spending, and anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Zwergschnauzer's national animal is the wild schnauzer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
