Reinforced Steel II

Population640 million


The Republic of Reinforced Steel II is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 640 million Steel Workers enjoy frequent elections, which are uniformly corrupted by big-spending corporations buying politicians who best suit their interests.

The relatively small, moralistic, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Spirituality, although Defense and Law & Order are also considered important, while Industry and Environment are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.7%.

The very strong Reinforced Steel IIian economy, worth 39.9 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. Average income is 62,421 florins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 203,706 per year while the poor average 14,388, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

Edutainment video games are taking Reinforced Steel II's students to the next level, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, sanitary products are sold in brown paper at hairdressers' salons, and the country is littered with broken homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force. Reinforced Steel II's national animal is the dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Reinforced Steel II is ranked 144,355th in the world and 18th in The New Iron Order for Largest Governments, scoring 10.34 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
