California Rouge

Population1.614 billion


The Democratic Republic of California Rouge is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its fear of technology, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.614 billion California Rogue are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 57.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish California Rogue economy, worth 29.8 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 18,435 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's a miracle that there aren't more plane crashes, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, family trees become bare as entire branches are lopped off, and the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. California Rouge's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

California Rouge is ranked 88,514th in the world and 13th in Leftist Agrarian Revolutionary Union for Lowest Crime Rates, with 65.81 law-abiding acts per hour.
