“Through the Fire, through the Night”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Diplomat
Location: the Pacific
The Dominion of Rothinzil is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mary the Fantabulous with an iron fist, and remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, cynical population of 13.612 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zargon. The average income tax rate is 100%. 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 government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, Rothinzil has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. 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, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the drakar.
