LeaderJo Armaros


The Ominous moonlight of A Bloodred Moon is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jo Armaros with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The quiet, industrious population of 7.31 billion Armarosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pits of Shadow. The average income tax rate is 25.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Bloodred Moonian economy, worth 185 trillion souls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 25,399 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Jo Armaros to meetings with foreign heads of state, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, A Bloodred Moon's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, and battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Bloodred Moon's national animal is the Wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Wolfism.

A Bloodred Moon is ranked 156,096th in the world and 299th in Lone Wolves United for Most Patriotic, with 7.81 flags saluted per person per day.
