The Republic of Uzil is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 498 million Uzilis 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 large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Syāāňqana. The average income tax rate is 64.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Uzili economy, worth 24.3 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 48,717 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, foreigners are treated with great suspicion, and the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uzil's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
