The Kingdom of PlanetMercury is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Freddie Mercury with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.121 billion PlanetMercuries are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bulsara. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient PlanetMercuryian economy, worth 305 trillion pounds 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 black market in Uranium Mining, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. 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 144,025 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, retiring citizens are dragged away in the middle of the night by mysterious men in black suits, clergy who start talking about politics are forced to take a holy vow of silence, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PlanetMercury's national animal is the Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
