|Faith||The word of all|
The Holy Empire of Danfer is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The high priest and prophet with an iron fist, and renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, zero percent divorce rate, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.454 billion pawn of the lords are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.5%.
The all-consuming a pawn economy, worth 275 trillion tazmjs 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. 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 an impressive 112,430 tazmjs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 534,711 per year while the poor average 13,921, a ratio of 38.4 to 1.
Vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, immigrants are told to pull themselves up by their worn-out budget bootstraps, the nation is loathed abroad for dumping all of its waste in international waters, and citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Danfer's national animal is the dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The word of all.
