The Dictatorship of the Nuke Man

Population18 million


The People's Republic of The Dictatorship of the Nuke Man is a tiny, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 18 million Dictatorship of the Nuke Manians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The struggling Dictatorship of the Nuke Manian economy, worth 304 billion Nukes 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. 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 16,934 Nukes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, military spending recently hit a new high, and military spending is on the increase. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dictatorship of the Nuke Man's national animal is the Nukes, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Dictatorship of the Nuke Man is ranked 150,559th in the world and 6,001st in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 305 billion Standard Monetary Units.
