“Big Sister has always been Big Sister” Lucia
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: the Pacific
The Big Sister of Kurnugia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lucia with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.23 billion Kurnugians 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Owari. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Kurnugian economy, worth a remarkable 1,890 trillion Imperial Juiceses 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 black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, 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 an amazing 261,467 Imperial Juiceses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Adults pretending to be teenage girls claim to have wholesome motives, Lucia makes and breaks shaky peace deals in 140 characters or less, singing in public is only allowed if you are singing the praise of the Motherland, and pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kurnugia's national animal is the Blue Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Diaries.
