We welcome The United States of Skipio (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=Skipio), as the 193rd member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The United States of Skipio is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. Its compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 76 million are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- concentrates mainly on Social Welfare, although Education and Religion & Spirituality are on the agenda. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28%. A healthy private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Door-to-door Insurance Sales and Book Publishing.
Anti-government web sites are springing up, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and gun ownership is compulsory. Crime is totally unknown. Skipio's national animal is the bengal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the coke.
