“We're better than you”
|Category: Corporate Police State|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: the South Pacific
The Miserable Land of Aramanchovia is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of public education. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.607 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arazmaz. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Information Technology.
There are no minimum wage laws, reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, Aramanchovia Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', and the government seizes all major gold finds. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Aramanchovia's national animal is the Spined Tiger Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is worshipping The Leader, and its currency is the Coin.
