Regional Influence: Enforcer
The Templar Empire of Dephire is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Phoenix Emperor Tristan Skragg with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 18.733 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as the Environment and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ghray. The average income tax rate is 68%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.
Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, medical lawsuits are out of control, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and the government pours millions of Gothics into rehabilitation programs annually. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dephire's national animal is the Phoenix Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Mixed, and its currency is the Gothic.
