Economy

GDP: $1,072,000,000,000

Currency: Kronenn 

    Laurentia is a Mixed Economic System. The Government heavily invests into the Public sector and has often also invested into promising private companies. Companies moving to Laurentia enjoy 23% Tax reduction for 15 years. Being able to keep jobs in the Secondary Sector has been no easy task, but the government opens new infostructure programs hiring many people. The Government also puts people with Secondary jobs [construction, mining, forestry, etc…] on the top of lists for Government Programs, and have access to top quality education free of charge. In modern trends, people in Secondary Sector jobs have decreased to roughly 5% of the total labor force.  Because of the global trend in decline towards these jobs, the government has increased spending towards advertising the free eduction policies the government employees so that people in these sectors can be put into skilled labor. 

    Laurentia’s economy has an AAA rating and has built a strong currency the Kronen or Laurentian Kronen. Valued at 1 Kr - 0.75 USD, The Kronen has built a sustainable exchange rate with other nations. The economy has grown consecutively since 2002 but has had sharp declines in 2004, 2007, and 2014 as a result of global economic downfall. However, growth continued and the government’s federal surplus has amounted to nearly 8 Trillion Kr. 

    Laurentia’s debt had been roughly 207 Billion Kr in 1998 and was growing at an astonishing rate. The Demokratische Bewegungs Partei quickly moved to curb this debt crisis by limiting foreign investment, and increasing spending in the public sector and providing higher economic incentives for companies to move into Laurentia. 

 

Health Care

The State runs a health care system called Couverture Maladie Universelle or CMU. In the CMU, all Laurentian Citizens may visit all hospitals and clinics in the country. Every citizen has a CMU card issued at the age of 18. Before 18 children are linked to their parent’s accounts. Although health check ups must be paid in cash, the Government reimburses the CMU account between 70-80% of the cost. Treatments are paid for by the Government, and the CMU account is always topped off by the Government. However, the CMU costs the country a huge chunk of its GDP. Roughly 400 Billion Krone go to Health Care. However, Laurentians enjoy some of the best healthcare, and the most healthy and longest lives.

 

Established in 1947, the CMU, everyone must pay for mandatory Health Insurance in the form of Payroll Tax, Income Tax, and other taxes such as Alcohol and Tobacco tax. There are 5 types of Insurance, General, Independent, Agricultural, Student, and Public Servant. The CMU covers things from In and Out patient, Specialists, Dentists, Diagnostic, Prescription Drugs, Medical Device, Mental Health, Medical Transportation, House Call, Maternity Benefits, and Child Care. They also have a health insurance plan for the unemployed, and others who may not be able to obtain one from their work.  Although Doctors make less money compared to other nations, they receive free medical training, income and social security tax reductions and government support.  Doctors who do use the Government System have funds and budgets set by the Ministry of Health, who also decided the numbers of beds, what equipment used, and set up procedures.  The costs of health are really low, with a check in costing roughly 1 Kr, a night in the hospital could cost up to 18 Kr, and medicine costs less than half a krone. The sicker someone is, the less it costs. Cancer patients receive 100% free medical care, people with obesity receive personal trainers and other medical conditions receive medical care to prevent the spread or worsening of a condition.  Roughly 56% of doctors in Laurentia are self-employed and a majority use Government systems

 

Labor Laws

The Labor laws of Laurentia, are modernized and revised version of the de Roux Labor Code. Since 1970, Laurentia had been created a new labor code. Under Prime Minister de Roux, the country saw a pro-business and anti-union legislature which led to 3 months of protest and riots until the protests died out. Economic prosperity continued and rapidly rose.

Religion

The Federation declared a Secular State in its creation in 1932, however until the Conservative Governments collapse in 1978, religion heavily influenced government and played a pivotal role in policy making. Since the collapse of the Conservative Government in the late 70s,  the Federation slowly moved into a fully secular state. 

The Secular Government following the death of Conservative de Roux worked to enforce the Secular Ideas with Religion no longer affect state affairs.  The Government has worked to accommodate all the religious groups within Laurentia, and majority of the populous live in harmony. Religious strifes caused a lot of problems for the Konservative Administration
