“Bow before the mighty government.”
|Category: Corporate Police State|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Empiric Federation of Xixq is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Supreme Overlord with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.312 billion, 1.311 billion of whom are zombies, Xixqs are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xixq City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Automobile Manufacturing.
Children spout "Bow before the mighty government." involuntarily throughout the day, a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, and the number of children one can have is restricted by law. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Xixq's national animal is the grizzly bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Xixqian, and its currency is the Xaf.
Xixq is currently considering its options.
