“Third Emperor of the New Galactic Empire”
|Category: Corporate Police State|
Regional Influence: Superpower
Location: The New Galactic Empire
The New Galactic Emperor of Darth Radix II is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Radix with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.747 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 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 New Bastion. The average income tax rate is 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.
The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Darth Radix II after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, and muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darth Radix II's national animal is the revan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Sithism, and its currency is the Imperial Credit.
