The Principality of Morshun is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 283 million Morshunians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 32.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Morshunian economy, worth 10.4 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 36,840 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, coat closets are being re-branded as bedrooms, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, and criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Morshun's national animal is the crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
