The Republic of Original Colonies is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, digital currency, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 398 million Original Coloniesians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Original Coloniesian economy, worth 43.9 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 110,241 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 450,048 per year while the poor average 17,893, a ratio of 25.2 to 1.
Politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter', fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, and children have lost interest in toy guns in favor of toy meth lab kits. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Original Colonies's national animal is the hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
