|Leader||Council Leader Drummer|
The Confederacy of Independant Islands is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Council Leader Drummer with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, feral children, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed population of 1.399 billion Islanders 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sassania. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Independant economy, worth 87.9 trillion solar credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 62,845 solar credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, geosynchronous satellites are now manned by unpaid interns, and asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Independant Islands's national animal is the Coral Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
