Supreme Authority

LeaderThe Overseer


The Dominion of Supreme Authority is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Overseer with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.192 billion subjects 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Dominionist economy, worth a remarkable 3,266 trillion CENSOREDS 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 398,702 CENSOREDS, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes, the fate of the world literally rests on The Overseer's fingers, and there's sophisticated talk of revolution within the ever-expanding mining colonies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Supreme Authority's national animal is the PETS ARE OUTLAWED, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is RELIGION IS OUTLAWED.

Supreme Authority is ranked 4,355th in the world and 1st in The Imperial Consortium for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 40,612.76 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
