LeaderYevgeny Terenti


The People's Republic of Central Ryal is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Yevgeny Terenti with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, humorless population of 2.318 billion Central Ryalians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central City. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Central Ryalian economy, worth 304 trillion Aqes a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,324 Aqes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a bright dawn ahead for Central Ryal, Yevgeny Terenti's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, and the government has the power to seize property at will. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Central Ryal's national animal is the Swallow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Central Ryal is ranked 3,207th in the world and 178th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 94.72 on the Human Development Index.
