The Holy Empire Sol of ShyVini is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Vincent with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 911 million ShyVinians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terra. The average income tax rate is 18.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse ShyVinian economy, worth 120 trillion Bitcoins 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 Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. 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 132,299 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
90% of active duty SAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, gene-engineered sewerjacks don't smell but they do stink, and people think "siege mentality" is a positive trait. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ShyVini's national animal is the Dinosaur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
