The Republic of Strawberrycheese is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 497 million Strawberrycheeseans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Strawberrycheesean economy, worth 15.4 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 31,037 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Strawberrycheese's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
