“Retired Squadron Admiral of The Red Fleet”
|Category: Left-wing Utopia|
Regional Influence: Instigator
The Militaristic Matriarchy of Pikti is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Squadron Admiral Octobrianna with a fair hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.448 billion Piktians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent 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 Heavily Armoured Bunker of Pikti. The average income tax rate is 95%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
The commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Pikti with a very polite populace, most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, euthanasia is legal, and manufacturers are sued for almost anything not covered in their catalogue-sized manuals. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control. Pikti's national animal is the Armed Sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the SRBT Bucks.
