“Pride in strength” Arne
|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Republic of Kroken is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Arne with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 11.413 billion Krokenians 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neslandsvatn. The average income tax rate is 26.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Krokenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,865 trillion Trilqis a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 251,086 Trilqis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
All children's clothes come in only cream and off-white to prevent offense, the government seizes all major gold finds, it's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children, and the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kroken's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
