The Angelus Velocitas Eradicato of Project Independence is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its devotion to social welfare. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.279 billion are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Commerce, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of AVE Command. The average income tax rate is 69%, and even higher for the wealthy. A robust private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Woodchip Exports.
Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, the studies of art and philosophy are banned, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Project Independence's national animal is the White Phoenix, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Imperialian Christianity, and its currency is the Halicarnassus.
