The Empire of The Philippiniada is a tiny, devout nation, notable for its compulsory military service. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 5 million have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government concentrates mainly on Religion & Spirituality, although Defence and Law & Order are on the agenda. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13%. A large private sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, followed by Cheese Exports and Retail.
Voting is compulsory. Crime is a serious problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Philippiniada's national animal is the eagle and its currency is the pesonian.
