“Virtue through Duty”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The Leftist Assembly
The Republic of Harrada is a huge, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 488 million Harradans 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Augusta. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Harradan economy, worth 22.0 trillion Aquilas 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 Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Retail. Average income is 45,014 Aquilas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Ministers browse Alright! magazine for fashion tips, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park, and most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Harrada's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
