The Republic of -Guatemala- is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its digital currency, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 293 million Guatemalans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.7%.
The strong Guatemalan economy, worth 14.6 trillion quetzals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. Average income is 49,900 quetzals, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.
The masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, grinning punters say that casino roulette is the greatest high that life has to offer, record numbers of students are leaving school to enter the workforce, and Leader has declared a weed sticking through a crack in the sidewalk to be the nation's newest green space. Crime is moderate. -Guatemala-'s national animal is the Quetzal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
