LeaderSupereme Director Vladimir Random


The Holy Random Nation of The New United Socialist Random Empire is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Supereme Director Vladimir Random with an iron fist, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.976 billion New Randomians 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Chancia Randomia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Random economy, worth a remarkable 1,224 trillion Randoms a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 246,108 Randoms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, being Supereme Director Vladimir Random has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, large-girthed charity workers assign themselves healthy wages for their work with starving children, and creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New United Socialist Random Empire's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

The New United Socialist Random Empire is ranked 25,594th in the world and 4th in The United Federations for Most Extreme, scoring 35.61 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
