The Revolutionary Order of Marxist Rebel is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Karl Trotsky with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 12.106 billion Marxist Rebelians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Engelsgrad. The average income tax rate is 71%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing.
Marxist Rebel's leader goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Engelsgrad Times is sold out, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, and immigrant herding has become a national pastime. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a major problem, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Marxist Rebel's national animal is the Snowball, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the People's Coin.
