“War is peace” Tomas Lovekost

Regional Influence: Vassal
The Imperial Union of States of Oneid is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Tomas Lovekost with an iron fist, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.427 billion Oneidians 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, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shanghai. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Oneidian economy, worth 363 trillion Dolars a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 149,702 Dolars, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.
Anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, twins are held culpable for the actions of their siblings, a citizen who thinks a slave is a deadbeat is entitled to make the descriptor literally true, and naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oneid's national animal is the Cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Empty Gods.
