Now for Turpitainia, the largest SimNation on SimEarth(haha!) Anyway it has a population of over 7 million Sims and is very densely populated in cities and sparely populated in the countryside. This entry is to describe the nation, its government, and a few interesting tidbits to try and make this city journal interesting.
Turpitainia has a cross between a Democratic and Republican Government. The President stays in office for 8 years and is elected solely by the people, no electoral college. In a day and age where Sims can communicate instantly through massive communication infrastructures an electoral college is useless.
Next there is the national assembly, the Sim's version of congress. The president can kick any delegate of the assembly off for just cause however the national assembly can remove the president from office.
The center of government resides in the city of metropolis which is also in the center of Turpitainia. It is by far the largest city in the country holding over 2.5 million Sims. The people of this country are fiercely patriotic given the fact that the government has not strayed in serving its people. This means that an invading enemy would have a 2 million Sim militia to fight if they wish to take capital.
An average Sim enjoys a trove of government programs:
Appropriately adjusted taxes, the rich pay a lot more than the poor causing some unrest but the economic prosperity of the nation more than makes up the difference.
Nation healthcare: every Sim receives free healthcare no matter how poor or wealthy
Impeccable educational system: The Sims are very well educated.
Socialized Utility Providers: Non profit utility companies mean prices that Sims pay are only breakeven prices to cover costs.
Solid Welfare and Social Security System: Sims enjoy lovely retirements.
And a lot more but it would get boring to read
Its easy to see why the Sims of Turpitainia are very patriotic, as a result Turpitainia boasts a very well trained, motivated, and equipped military. Finally from a young age Sims are encouraged to pursue their dreams and are taught to work hard to achieve them through progressive social programs, so the fortune 500 list is always booming with new corporations changing the way Sims live their lives and as a result Turpitainia's economy is booming.
That's all about the country, now time to show off some cities!!
