“Stand Strong and Walk in Peace”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: the South Pacific
The Empire of Shema Mitzvah is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, devout population of 992 million Shema Mitzvahians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of TZION. The average income tax rate is 74.4%.
The Shema Mitzvahian economy, worth 46.8 trillion Golds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,159 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.
Election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, ministers are now allowed to put suggestions in the governmental suggestion box, children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, and victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shema Mitzvah's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
