“Wir verdienen, wir zerstören” Kurapika Kurta
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Squire
The Republic of Gart Priess is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kurapika Kurta with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.975 billion Priesses have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dartoka. The average income tax rate is 64.6%.
The frighteningly efficient Priessian economy, worth a remarkable 1,748 trillion Tankas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 292,666 Tankas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
Commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems, and the flight attendant who draws the short straw is on "cockpit bucket duty". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gart Priess's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hoodoism.
