“We Will Endure”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The North Pacific
The Incorporated States of Pollos Othe is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 137 million Pollos Otheans 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 65.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Pollos Othean economy, worth 9.92 trillion lire a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,374 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, citizens are required to report any and all incidents of prayer to their local Religious Affairs Officer, the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pollos Othe's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
