“We Ride Together, We Die Together”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: the Rejected Realms
The Empire of Crazy Firemen is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Firefighter Clemente with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9.358 billion Crazy Firemenians 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, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Equality and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seagrave. The average income tax rate is 81%, 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.
Military spending is on the increase, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, and the government is flooded with compensation requests. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crazy Firemen's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Brotherhood.
