LeaderProvisional Radicastrian Government


The Provisional State of Radicaster is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Provisional Radicastrian Government with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, enslaved workforce, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.631 billion Radicastrians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Public Transport are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Balresk. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Radicastrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,235 trillion razis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 266,831 razis, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,325,572 per year while the poor average 30,385, a ratio of 43.6 to 1.

Former state leaders include a TV comic and a cowboy actor, college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, and the government has the power to seize property at will. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Radicaster's national animal is the animal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Radicaster is ranked 115,031st in the world and 6,142nd in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 31.02 on the Hayek Index.
