“Try this thing again”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: Ancient Lands
The Queen's State of Petre is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, cynical population of 19.47 billion Petreans 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Industry, Environment, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but underdeveloped Petrean economy, worth 625 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Automobile Manufacturing industry. Average income is 32,150 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
None has been named as Petre's national religion, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, and the Governor has just been declared ruler of Petre in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Petre's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.
Petre is ranked 19th in Ancient Lands and 19,099th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 183.4 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
