|Leader||Prince Noctis Lucis Caelum|
The Empire of Dres Van is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prince Noctis Lucis Caelum with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.913 billion Dres Vanians 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.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Val Royeaux. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Dres Vanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,000 trillion Zeniths a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 91,642 Zeniths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, the lactose-intolerant are force-fed cheese products with predictably gassy results, babies living in poverty are told to take responsibility for their own fortunes, and the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dres Van's national animal is the Adamantoise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Andrastianism.
