“Unity through power”
|Category: Psychotic Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Squire
Location: The Leftist Assembly
The People's Republic of Socialist Beartopia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Bearington with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.479 billion Beartopians 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ursaria. The average income tax rate is 89.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Socialist Beartopian economy, worth 146 trillion Social Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. Average income is 98,815 Social Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Foreigners are treated with great suspicion, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, and Renaissance frescos are being chiselled off public walls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Beartopia's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
