“Sauron demands our souls”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Regional Influence: Vassal
The White Wizard of Malkir is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Great Cthulhu with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.553 billion Kobolds have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Public Transport. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Kobold's Nest. The average income tax rate is 43%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing industries.
A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want, the breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Malkir, and the government is reining in public spending. Crime is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Malkir's national animal is the Human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Cthulhuism, and its currency is the Madness Token.
