The Red Army of Oppression69 is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Czar Plotnik with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.813 billion Dum-dums are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Plotnikgrad. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.
The Stoopid economy, worth 867 trillion maktoes 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. 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 an impressive 149,222 maktoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Teachers regularly paddle unruly students, detrimental health conditions can be a political death sentence, foreign governments regularly accuse the Stoopid military of war crimes, and city mayors have to get permission from parliament to take a vacation day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Oppression69's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Plotnikism.
Oppression69 is ranked 308,120th in the world and 5,570th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -23.54 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
