The Republican Empire of New Garzah is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by God-Emperor Sovie Varzhauis with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.627 billion Garzians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taezrat Ghertaa. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Garzian economy, worth a remarkable 1,056 trillion Krezhs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,441 Krezhs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Garzah's national animal is the neir, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is radical agnosticism.
