“Sesuci sang surya”
|Category: Democratic Socialists|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Empire of Matahari is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Satyanegara with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 4.392 billion are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Suryakarta. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, graffiti graces every city's streets, the mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Matahari's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Matahari's national animal is the Griffin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Thari.
