“Bite the snake”
|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Republic of Doctorian is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Doctor with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.948 billion Doctorianians 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Doctorian City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57%. 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.
Genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Doctorian, political activists are routinely executed, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Doctorian's national animal is the snake, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the doctor.
