“From Many, One”
|Category: Psychotic Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The People's Republic of Eteles is a huge, genial nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, cynical population of 300 million Etelesians 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utopia. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Etelesian economy, worth 18.4 trillion deniers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 61,342 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Top-shelf magazines feature risqué centrefold spreads of ladies' wrists, prudishness is on the way out, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Eteles will pay them to stop. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eteles's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
