The Oppressed Peoples of Caine-35 is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 577 million Caine-35ians 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 42.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Caine-35ian economy, worth 5.64 trillion Pesos 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, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. 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 9,778 Pesos, 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-35's national animal is the Black Widow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
