“For the glory of the Republic!” Commandant Drummond
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Squire
The Grand Republic of Versail is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Commandant Drummond with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, vat-grown people, and conspicuous electricity pylons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.923 billion Versais are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oxsana. The income tax rate is 100%.
The frighteningly efficient Versailian economy, worth a remarkable 8,866 trillion Rubles 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 amazing 494,705 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.
The "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, many believe that Commandant Drummond's head is big enough for the sun to orbit around it, reddish-brown is the new black, and funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Versail's national animal is the Brown Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orthodox Christian.
