Imperialist Cavalry

Population541 million


The Armed Republic of Imperialist Cavalry is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working, cynical population of 541 million Imperialist Cavalrymen are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Imperialist Cavalryian economy, worth 24.3 trillion Swords a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,963 Swords, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion, wedding bands come in pairs to form wedding manacles, and troop transports blacken the sky as the military commences Operation Desert Ocean. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imperialist Cavalry's national animal is the Horses.

Imperialist Cavalry is ranked 196,796th in the world and 55th in The Embassy for Largest Black Market, with 23.2 billion Standard Monetary Units.
