|Leader||Dag Von Stone|
The Second Kingdom of Flatstone is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Dag Von Stone with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.611 billion Stonians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Szlād. The average income tax rate is 66.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Stonish economy, worth 281 trillion Sand Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 107,682 Sand Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, and government statistics suggest 115% of the population love Dag Von Stone. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flatstone's national animal is the Pet Rock, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Geologism.
