“Plenty through knowledge, freedom through marxism”
|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: the Rejected Realms
The Socialist Republic of Central Slavia is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Generalissimus Igor Plevňák with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 10.34 billion Central Slavians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nové Partizánske. The average income tax rate is 100%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing.
Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, children spout "Plenty through knowledge, freedom through marxism" involuntarily throughout the day, and immigrant herding has become a national pastime. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Central Slavia's national animal is the lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is atheism, and its currency is the toliar.
Central Slavia is ranked 114th in the Rejected Realms and 6,856th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 322 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
