“Freiheit und Wahrheit”
|Category: Compulsory Consumerist State|
Regional Influence: Power
The Imperial Republic of Rutianas is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Shein Darson with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.762 billion are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Defence, with areas such as the Environment and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rutia. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
The police force is rumoured to be made up of evil shadows with no souls, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, billions of Runais are being blown on orbital weapons development, and military spending recently hit a new high. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Rutianas's national animal is the Meerkat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is whatever, and its currency is the Runai.
