The Socialist Republic of The Pontic State is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 837 million Pontians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trebizond. The average income tax rate is 18.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Pontic economy, worth 43.6 trillion Euros a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 52,038 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, teenagers sit around on their butts all day, and money grows on trees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Pontic State's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
