“Only War Brings Peace” President Wilson
|Category: Authoritarian Democracy|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
The Empire of Voninstein is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Wilson with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 1.919 billion Voninstinians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shikoline. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Voninstinian economy, worth 255 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,904 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
You can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health, the nation solves other countries' human rights problems with a generous dose of violence, third world countries are rich in "I Love Shikoline" t-shirts, and history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Voninstein's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
