“All hail our leader! Saviour of Hrotsijka!”
|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Regional Influence: Dominator
Location: Holy Moosean Empire
The Holy Thiefdom of Hrotsijka is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Maxim Gromyko with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 17.259 billion 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 Law & Order, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bryxoi. The average income tax rate is 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Tourism and Arms Manufacturing.
Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour, and teenagers stay out into the wee hours of the morning "stargazing". Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hrotsijka's national animal is the Moosean Moose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Gromykoism, and its currency is the Aijk.
