The Queen's State of Saola is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enforced nudity, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical, humorless population of 9.48 billion Saolans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 64.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Saolan economy, worth 60.1 trillion betales a year, is highly specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 6,336 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, and Saola is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saola's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is none.
