The Republic of DC Island is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 905 million DC Islandians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 10.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong DC Islandian economy, worth 57.9 trillion pounds a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 63,955 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Trying to toast marshmallows in an electric fireplace just isn't the same, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. DC Island's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
