|Leader||Praetorianum Imperator Isaiah Lupares|
The Endless Fleet of Gattoartico is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Praetorianum Imperator Isaiah Lupares with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.892 billion Lupi di Mare 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HIMS Niflheim. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Un Lupo di Mare economy, worth 326 trillion kronor 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. 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 83,861 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The children of Gattoartico are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', and the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gattoartico's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
