“Loyalty, Wealth, Security”

The Queendom of Encurage is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 574 million Encurageans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malon. The average income tax rate is 56.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Encuragean economy, worth 73.1 trillion Mosths 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. 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 127,289 Mosths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Increasing numbers of children in Encurage have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, veterans in wheelchairs are left waist-deep in rice paddies to gather grain, and the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Encurage's national animal is the Great White Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
