“Do it first”
|Category: Psychotic Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The Americas
The Queen's State of Achigana is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The cynical population of 9.379 billion Achiganans 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 medium-sized, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 32.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Achiganan economy, worth 66.8 trillion betales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 7,126 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, popular political cartoonists are thrown in jail for inciting dissent, all marriages are arranged by the government, and historical fiction has been banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Achigana's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
