“Recht, vrijheid en gelijkheid!”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Regional Influence: Dominator
The Rossistic Republic of Rossiyan union is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5.22 billion Rossiyan unionians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rossopolis. The average income tax rate is 71%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.
Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, the nation leads Altrania in per capita stalking, Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Rossiyan union's radio stations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rossiyan union's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is Modern Hellenism, and its currency is the Rossiyan Drachess.
