“God Save the Queen”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Hermit
Location: British Arctic Territory
The Queen's State of Ile des Parry is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 20.899 billion Ile des Parryians 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Defense, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare is ignored. The average income tax rate is 64.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but underdeveloped Ile des Parryian economy, worth 502 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Pizza Delivery, Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 24,046 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the government is reining in public spending, the police force is on a recruitment drive, and military spending is on the increase. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Ile des Parry's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
