“Long live Liberalia.”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Dominator
Location: United Nations of Liberalia
The Archetypical Evil Empire of Rebels and Saints is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Doctor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.306 billion people 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint City. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient living economy, worth 602 trillion credits 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. 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 impressive 139,819 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Many of the unemployed have had the fight taken out of them, all the playground's a stage for living schoolchildren, nations that kill a person can expect a strongly worded letter, and murderers with law degrees can be seen swinging the gavel in courts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rebels and Saints's national animal is the fer-de-lance, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Technotheology.
