“Multa capita, a aeterna uero et a populo in aeternum”
|Category: Psychotic Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
|Capital||Urbe Tempestatum Regem|
The Militant Order of Hospitallar Hydrus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Giovanni Kaliburn with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, prohibition of alcohol, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.773 billion Hospitallars 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbe Tempestatum Regem. The average income tax rate is 77.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Hospitallar Hydrusian economy, worth 196 trillion Tempest Denarii 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 led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 110,574 Tempest Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, books are so highly regarded in Hospitallar Hydrus that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, and forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hospitallar Hydrus's national animal is the Hydra, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Ordo Hydrus.
