Western Mediterranea

The United States of Western Mediterranea is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 469 million Occitan-Catalans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 50.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Western Mediterranean economy, worth 24.6 trillion Chronocoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,431 Chronocoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Occitan-Catalans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Western Mediterranea's national animal is the Mediterranean Horseshoe Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Western Mediterranea is ranked 186,514th in the world and 271st in Thaecia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 65,872 Standard Monetary Units.
