The Socialist Random Empire

Population3.303 billion

CapitalChancia Randomia


The Former Socialist States of The Socialist Random Empire is a massive, safe nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, enslaved workforce, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.303 billion Randomians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chancia Randomia. The average income tax rate is 47.8%.

The strong Socialist Random Empirean economy, worth 238 trillion Randoms a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,331 Randoms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Socialist Random Empire's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Socialist Random Empire is ranked 73,175th in the world and 1st in The Random Empire Controlled States for Lowest Crime Rates, with 66.15 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
