The Resclonian Commonwealth.



  • The Resclonian Commonwealth.

    Introduction.
    The Commonwealth of Resclonia is a tiny, pleasant nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5 million 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.

    The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Social Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 27%, but much higher for the wealthy. A small but healthy private sector is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, followed by Book Publishing and Gambling.

    Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Resclonia's national animal is the Dove and its currency is the Resclonia Dollar.

    History:
    The Resclonian Commonwealth was founded in 1920 after WWI as a union of 8 close islands which were formerly part of the British Empire to strive to improve themselves in all aspects. During the 1920's, each island recieved an assembly to control internal matters like law & farming. The nation declared itself strictly neutral and recieved funding from several nations which paved the way for the society we see today.
