Sopwith Dromedax

The sixth pearl of Chalakanesia.

Heineman's freshest presidential problem concerned Sopwith Dromedax, the Sixth Pearl, which was refusing to send its share of the federal tax to the federal treasury. This was personally important to Heineman, since, as president, he was head of the federal government, and without those tax monies he could not fulfill his programs for Chalakanesia. Heineman began to carefully read his way through the treasury report which detailed Sopwith Dromedax's delinquencies.

[NoP Ch13]

The presidency of the Federation of Chalakanesia rotated from state to state, passing from Cherwin Skam to Midas Makorum, from Unlox Brocade to Solakarno, from Jaz Diva to Sopwith Dromedax, and so at last to Islam Demaxus. As the presidential term was seven years, a complete rotation of the presidency took forty-nine years, which meant that no person could reasonably hope to be president twice in one lifetime.
Though this constitutional device had been devised to prevent any island, group, clique or faction from getting a lockgrip on power, and though it worked up to a point, the transfer of presidential power from one island to another was never either entirely pure or entirely effective. [NoP Ch4]
