The Revolutionary Order of Marxist Rebel is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Karl Trotsky with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 15.443 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.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Engelsgrad. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Marxist Rebelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,030 trillion People's Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 66,752 People's Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
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 is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Marxist Rebel's national animal is the Snowball, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
