“The Snakes Will Smoke” Diaz

Location: Aeterna Publicae
The Federal Socialist State of Badassistanian is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Diaz with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 11.585 billion Badassistanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The large, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rio. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Badassistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,938 trillion Pesos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 167,307 Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
Translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Peso charge on their phone bill, Violetist maidens who fall for an outsider must leave their violet light districts in shame, and foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Badassistanian Moonshine". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Badassistanian's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
