|Leader||Aberdeen Gozelinus VIII|
The Partial Monarchy of Four Sicilys is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Aberdeen Gozelinus VIII with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.252 billion Four Sicilysians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Napoli. The average income tax rate is 41.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Four Sicilysian economy, worth 155 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 124,019 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
The controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, a major religion has been named as Four Sicilys's national religion, and government bureaucrats devote many man-hours to trying to measure unquantifiables. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Four Sicilys's national animal is the leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
