OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The 24 of ------------------------ is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Riemstagrad with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.688 billion ------------------------ians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riemstagrad. The average income tax rate is 69%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, political activists are routinely executed, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low. ------------------------'s national animal is the shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its currency is the 24.

------------------------ is ranked 1st in Riemst and 5,861st in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 12 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
