“For Memel Land and our Prince”
|Category: Psychotic Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Apprentice
The Kingdom of Great Memel is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.433 billion Great Memelians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heydekrug. The average income tax rate is 63.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Great Memelian economy, worth 94.9 trillion Memarks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,208 Memarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Leader has just been declared ruler of Great Memel in an international press conference, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, a major religion has been named as Great Memel's national religion, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Great Memelians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Memel's national animal is the heron.
