The Dominion of IGS Ludwigshafen am Rhein is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 470 million Black Fleet Sailors are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.8%.
The Black Fleet Sailor economy, worth 19.7 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,836 Imperial Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.
Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, military spending recently hit a new high, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. IGS Ludwigshafen am Rhein's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
