|Animal||The Grey Wolf|
The Dark Dictatorship of Pricane is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Auri Akana with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.55 billion Pricaneans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Southern Tribes. The average income tax rate is 55.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Pricanean economy, worth 117 trillion Silvers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,854 Silvers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world, Merry Birthday is a popular protest song despite the risk of fines and royalty dues, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and corrupt Party bureaucrats are being voted out of office in overwhelming numbers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pricane's national animal is the The Grey Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Athiestism.
