The People's Snowy Republic of Samozaryadnyastan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Incumbent of the People Joachim Ivanov with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.369 billion Samozaryadnyastanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Samozniy-Sapphire. The average income tax rate is 91%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism, Book Publishing, and Gambling industries.
Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, Samozaryadnyastan's schoolchildren are manufactured into a segregated bunch of soldiers, religious zealots, and computer technicians, embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns, and Samozaryadnyastan is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Samozaryadnyastan's national animal is the Samozniy Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is The Brotherhood of UltraScience, and its currency is the Samozniy Dollar.
