“THAT WHICH SPEAKS CAN ALSO SCREAM”
|Category: Compulsory Consumerist State|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The Milky Way Galaxy
The Reborn Hegemony of Mekanta is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Kareh math Izakto with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.089 billion Mekantans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khiikoza. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Woodchip Exports and Uranium Mining.
Speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, and small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mekanta's national animal is the simulant drone, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Mekantan Dominionism, and its currency is the production credit.
