|Leader||Patriarch Oleg I Alexandrovich|
The Holy Patriarchate of The Dolanets islands is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Patriarch Oleg I Alexandrovich with an iron fist, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, sprawling nuclear power plants, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.421 billion Dolanetians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The tiny, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Карьград. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Dolanetian economy, worth a remarkable 1,022 trillion Дырмаs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 231,176 Дырмаs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 819,736 per year while the poor average 47,027, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.
It's always rabbit season, governments opposing The Dolanets islands are beset by rebels, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, and relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dolanets islands's national animal is the Pit viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Dolanetian Orthodox.
