“Ours is the Fury”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Superpower
Location: The Imperial Realms
The Imperial Realms of Briannia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor William Lucius Rhosar II with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.687 billion Briannians 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 83%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Eminent domain has been abolished, punitive tariffs protect local industry, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Briannia's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Pound Sterling.
