“Our Glorius Ruler will Protect Us”
|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Regional Influence: Hegemony
Location: Zaklenite Territories
The Zyvexian Dictatorship of Zaklen is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Peter Zyvex with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.394 billion Zaklenites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Religion & Spirituality, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zakopolis. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Gambling industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Automobile Manufacturing.
A dictator has seized power and outlawed elections, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, and prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zaklen's national animal is the Snow Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Zaklenite Christianity, and its currency is the Grace.
