The Dictatorship of ReOpenNominations is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 139 million iRONics are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 59.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant iRONic economy, worth 1.11 trillion drama llamas 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 7,959 drama llamas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, Leader signs the laws but abides by none of them, pre-schoolers who draw stick figures of their favorite celebrities are sued for infringing image rights, and the Navy has outraged the international community by sinking a boatload of refugees to prevent them reaching the shore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ReOpenNominations's national animal is the llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
