LeaderKing Germain V


The Kingdom of Tshana is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Germain V with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 3.181 billion Tshanans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lumara. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Tshanan economy, worth 641 trillion Royals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 201,592 Royals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency, King Germain V's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and military officers are given medals for disobeying orders. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tshana's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tshana is ranked 1,525th in the world and 40th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 28,450.87 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
