“Long live the People, Long live Freedom!” Obreive
|Category: Left-Leaning College State|
Regional Influence: Sprat
Location: The North Pacific
The Free Land of Rydolke is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Obreive with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 986 million Rydolkeans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lydrel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.7%.
The all-consuming Rydolkean economy, worth 112 trillion anarchomarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 113,766 anarchomarks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 354,824 per year while the poor average 28,017, a ratio of 12.7 to 1.
Police officers find government bureaucracy more terrifying than most serial killers, citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, many aides in Obreive's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, and Rydolke is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Rydolke's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
