The Protectorate of PRW is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Markus-1209 with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.224 billion PRWians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
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 Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ryan. The average income tax rate is 71%, and even higher for the wealthy. A robust private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Retail and Arms Manufacturing.
A cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, speaking out against the government is punishable by flogging, hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. PRW's national animal is the Slave, its national religion is Ethanism, and its currency is the Folet.
