“Through the Fire, through the Night”

Regional Influence: Envoy
Location: the Pacific
The Dominion of Rothinzil is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Mary the Fantabulous with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 14.73 billion Rothinzilians 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.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zargon. The income tax rate is 100%.
The Rothinzilian economy, worth a remarkable 2,606 trillion drakars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 176,982 drakars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", the government seizes all major gold finds, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rothinzil's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is a major religion.
