Postby Nobody44 » 30 Sep 2014, 17:09

Quick Information

Name of Country – The Helvetican Confederation
Government type – Corporate Oligarchy
Capital – Bern
Location - Switzerland
Population – 2 million (increase 0.5% per year)
Military – 1,000
Other Information - Though it has a very small population, the Helvetican Confederation makes up for this by utilizing their advanced understanding of AI and process automation.

Details

Government

Helvetica is controlled by a congress of the most powerful corporations in each of the principle industries: technology, banking, manufacturing, mining and pharmaceuticals. The technological and banking industries are the largest in Helvetica and thus their respective corporations are dominate in the decision making process.

Society

Efficiency and progress are the core values of Helvetican society. The government controls almost everything in Helvetica, from the economy to birth-rates. Helveticans live with prosperity and security but without much freedom. Those who protest against the government or break the law are exiled, as prison is such an inefficient method of punishment.

Economy

The principle industries in Helvetica are technology, banking, manufacturing, mining and pharmaceuticals. Due to its small landmass and population, Helvetica relies heavily on automation and trade to sustain its economy. The corporate control of the nation has provided the established industries with stability and prosperity, though the growth of new industries that are not represented in the corporate congress is extremely rare.

Military

Helvetica's peacetime military is the Helvetic Guard, an elite group who are a symbol of Helvetic efficiency to the populace. Functionally, the Helvetic Guard is one of the best special operations groups in the World, with the finest training and equipment money can buy at their disposal. In times of war, Helvetica fields an army of drones; Helveticans only see the battlefield as a last resort.

Technology

Technological development and scientific progress are highly valued in Helvetic society, thus research is one of Helvetica's highest priorities. Helvetica specializes in the development of AI, due to both their focus on efficiency and the necessity for automation created by its small population.

I think if we all stayed neutral it might be better. Us four really have no business down south.
