Caine-45

Population587 million

The United States of Caine-45 is a huge, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 587 million Caine-45ians 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 medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 37.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Caine-45ian economy, worth 6.24 trillion Golds 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, Cheese Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. 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 10,635 Golds, 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-45's national animal is the Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Caine-45 is ranked 84,948th in the world and 3rd in The Homeland Defense League for Best Weather, with 106 Meters Of Sunlight.
