“Hope Rides Alone”
|Category: Capitalist Paradise|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: Ordo Imperialia
The Angelus Vox Populi of Klaus Devestatorie is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Avakael with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 13.41 billion Klaus Devestatorieans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Commerce and Law & Order are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperialia. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing industries.
Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, murder victims' families receive windfall payouts when the murderers are executed, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, and the White Phoenix is reportedly extinct. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Klaus Devestatorie's national animal is the White Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Hope, and its currency is the Halicarnassus.
