Caine-26

The Fiefdom of Caine-26 is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 568 million Caine-26ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 41.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Caine-26ian economy, worth 5.62 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 9,890 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Caine-26's national animal is the Scorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Caine-26 is ranked 151,527th in the world and 3rd in Catraverse for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 497.76 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
