The Queendom of Golden Motherland is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 346 million Golden Motherlandians 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Golden Motherlandian economy, worth 2.80 trillion diamonds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 8,080 diamonds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Golden Motherland City spends billions upgrading public transport, increasing inclusiveness is a sign of the times, weekly religious services often resemble campaign rallies, and it's a long jump to get onto the housing ladder. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Golden Motherland's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
