LeaderAltan Cakmak


The Socialist Republic of Radicaster is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Altan Cakmak with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 13.386 billion Radicastrians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magiagrad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Radicastrian economy, worth a remarkable 6,008 trillion lire 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 amazing 448,863 lire, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,634,970 per year while the poor average 87,589, a ratio of 18.7 to 1.

Birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, and the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams. 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 bull, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is atheism.

Radicaster is ranked 312,040th in the world and 9,560th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -62 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
