|Leader||Matthew van Hardwick|
The United Socialist States of Prairiegrass is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Matthew van Hardwick with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.088 billion Prairiegrassians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Felinapolis. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Prairiegrassian economy, worth 48.6 trillion Wheatons a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 44,655 Wheatons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Matthew van Hardwick to meetings with foreign heads of state, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, and the government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Prairiegrass's national animal is the Prairie Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
