LeaderSupreme Empress Angelina Luz


The New Empire of Terroristen is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Empress Angelina Luz with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, lack of airports, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.346 billion chinese 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 large, corrupt, moralistic government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Education and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beijing. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.6%.

The frighteningly efficient chinese economy, worth a remarkable 1,348 trillion yuan a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 212,502 yuan, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,276,157 per year while the poor average 15,999, a ratio of 79.8 to 1.

Teens reminisce about when birthdays weren't celebrated with a cool glass of cabbage juice and a slice of corn-cream topped millet cake, politicians tack on a service charge for assisting with casework, Terroristen Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', and claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Terroristen's national animal is the dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Terroristen is ranked 265,809th in the world and 82nd in Latinoamerica Libre for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -23.64 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
