Robotic Weapons Industries

Population26 million


The Dictatorship of Robotic Weapons Industries is a small, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 26 million Robotic Weapons Industriesians 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 medium-sized, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.8%.

The very strong Robotic Weapons Industriesian economy, worth 1.57 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 60,247 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 243,536 per year while the poor average 9,941, a ratio of 24.5 to 1.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, military spending recently hit a new high, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Credits each year, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Robotic Weapons Industries's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Robotic Weapons Industries is ranked 81,392nd in the world and 3,599th in The East Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 937.4 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
