|Leader||President Matthieu Chappelle|
The People's Socialist Republic of Radicaster is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Matthieu Chappelle with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.331 billion Radicastrians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nouvelle-Versailles. The average income tax rate is 68.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Radicastrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,841 trillion francs 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. 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 345,430 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Builders across Radicaster are blocked up with orders for new public loos, students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and a signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that she is in fact a crook after all. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Radicaster's national animal is the aigle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
