“KILL OR BE KILLED” general degaras
|Category: Psychotic Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Handshaker
Location: The United Federations
The Galactic Empire of Riptaria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by general degaras with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.913 billion Riptarians 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, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with International Aid and Environment not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of riptaria city. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.
The all-consuming Riptarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,921 trillion ripions 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, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip 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 amazing 391,057 ripions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.
Recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for general degaras's eyes only', the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, and devotion to God is only skin-deep. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Riptaria's national animal is the slave, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.
