Hashtag not a dictator

Population1.172 billion

CapitalTwha ruchseg
LeaderThe Supreme Leaders


The Oppressed Peoples of Hashtag not a dictator is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Supreme Leaders with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avant-garde cinema, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 1.172 billion dictators are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Twha ruchseg. The average income tax rate is 52.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Hashtag not a dictatorian economy, worth 39.6 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,791 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, tie-dye has been outlawed for being 'too occult', drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, and demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hashtag not a dictator's national animal is the sheeple, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hashtag not a dictator is ranked 146,240th in the world and 9th in Pyrrhia for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 24.33 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
