LeaderPavlo Uino


The Republic of Cruzh is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Pavlo Uino with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed population of 1.313 billion Cruzhians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cruzhico. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cruzhian economy, worth 212 trillion Cruzhmarks 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 161,618 Cruzhmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries. Crime is totally unknown. Cruzh's national animal is the Cruzger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cruzh is ranked 81,038th in the world and 3,875th in The North Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 0.23 Stalins.
