“Worship the Night”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: the South Pacific
The Free Land of Fristed is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Claw with an iron fist, and renowned for its lack of airports, zero percent divorce rate, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.922 billion Fristens are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nyallison. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Fristean economy, worth 252 trillion crystals 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Trout Farming. 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 86,509 crystals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Wedding bands come in pairs to form wedding manacles, 90% of active duty FAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and all footpaths have tollbooths. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Fristed's national animal is the polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Night.
