|Leader||Emperor Max I|
The Imperial State of Max Siotto is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Max I with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.581 billion Siottoans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siottograd. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Max Siottoan economy, worth 437 trillion Siottoan EuroDollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 169,517 Siottoan EuroDollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 956,215 per year while the poor average 14,787, a ratio of 64.7 to 1.
Soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, there is a disproportionate number of poor people in prison, and it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Max Siotto's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.
