LeaderEl Don de Paradis


The Federal Republic of RetroBeaners is a huge, safe nation, ruled by El Don de Paradis with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed population of 916 million RetroBeanersians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradis. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient RetroBeanersian economy, worth 116 trillion Libras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 127,705 Libras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

State officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute El Don de Paradis's portrait, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. RetroBeaners's national animal is the Monarch, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

RetroBeaners is ranked 108,081st in the world and 4,615th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,056.64 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
