|Leader||Prime Minister Leo Arason|
The Republic of Krogis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Leo Arason with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.403 billion Krogisians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raseinkija. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Krogisian economy, worth 163 trillion kronor 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Information Technology. 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 an impressive 116,616 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high, the nation's soldiers often believe they're in the Air Force, citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, and diplomatic cables about Prime Minister Leo Arason have suddenly been very flattering. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Krogis's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.
