The Empire of The Global Socialist Republic is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Minerva Telyakova with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.787 billion Global Socialist Republicans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valakoria. The average income tax rate is 66.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Global Socialist Republician economy, worth 142 trillion Units 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 Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. 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 79,818 Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, the military will start wars with other nations on a lark, they say that Minerva Telyakova's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia, and anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Global Socialist Republic's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
