“Unity, Discipline, Freedom”
|Category: Psychotic Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Empire of Hawk Scol Laske is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Laske with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, pith helmet sales, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.107 billion Laskeans 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 medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laske City. The average income tax rate is 56.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Laskean economy, worth 343 trillion Quetzels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,545 Quetzels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Hawk Scol Laske" at foreigners, billions of Quetzels are being blown on orbital weapons development, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Emperor Laske's wardrobe, and the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hawk Scol Laske's national animal is the Puffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Laskeanism.
