|Leader||NationStates MEMBER SINCE MARCH 2007|
The Quantum Interference Device of Courlany is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by NationStates MEMBER SINCE MARCH 2007 with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.933 billion Courlaners are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The large government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Courlanepolis-Sagan. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Courlan economy, worth a remarkable 4,551 trillion NOBEL PRIZES a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 268,774 NOBEL PRIZES, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Courlanepolis-Sagan as a backdrop, and the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Courlany's national animal is the PRINCETON TIGER, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
