“Peace through Strength”
|Category: Psychotic Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Apprentice
The United Kingdom of Praenestia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Praenestis Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.412 billion Praenestians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Praenestiaopolis. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Praenestian economy, worth a remarkable 5,013 trillion Sesterceses a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 272,268 Sesterceses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
The saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Praenestia's national animal is the Dire Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ultra Catholicism.
