Age of Steam and Steel OPs

Population399 million


The Holy Empire of Age of Steam and Steel OPs is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 399 million Age of Steam and Steel OPsians 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 industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 17,914 baht, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Age of Steam and Steel OPs's national animal is the kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
