Regional Influence: Handshaker
The White Elephant of Katyuscha is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by nah with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.224 billion Katyuschans 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 Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of nah. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Gambling and Furniture Restoration.
The nah is protected from hunting and slowly coming back from the brink of extinction, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Katyuscha Blood Tithe, a recent law has banned homes from having any more than one wheel, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Katyuscha's national animal is the nah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is nah, and its currency is the nah.
