“Novus ordo seclorum”
|Category: Compulsory Consumerist State|
Regional Influence: Truckler
The Consulate of Byronmandy is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Roland Bedivere with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 12.635 billion Byronmandyians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Allentown. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining industries.
Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Byronmandy's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Crown.
