“Peace through Strength”
|Category: Psychotic Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Apprentice
The United Kingdom of Praenestia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Praenestis Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.192 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 16.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Praenestian economy, worth a remarkable 4,039 trillion Sesterceses a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 200,047 Sesterceses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, and contestants on Praenestia's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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.
