“Through Unity We Create Peace”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Vassal
The Dominion Lands of The ruivan Empire is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Perron with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 12.81 billion Ruivans 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and the Environment receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coruscant. The average income tax rate is 90%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Automobile Manufacturing.
The government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, military spending recently hit a new high, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and drunk drivers are sentenced to death. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The ruivan Empire's national animal is the Ruivan Otter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, its national religion is Atheism, and its currency is the Ruiv.
