“Mushrooms Are Superior”
|Category: Corporate Police State|
Regional Influence: Hegemony
The Shroom Empire of New Mushroom Kingdom is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Napoleon I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.908 billion Mushrooms are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Toad Town. The average income tax rate is 92%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
Almost all of New Mushroom Kingdom's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, guns are banned, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. New Mushroom Kingdom's national animal is the mushroom, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the mushroom coin.
