The Red Kings

Population716 million

The Kingdom of The Red Kings is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 716 million Red Kingsians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 45.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Red Kingsian economy, worth 29.8 trillion Renminbis a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,602 Renminbis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent, male med students learning female anatomy do so with their eyes tightly closed, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and biology and religious education classes have recently been merged. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Red Kings's national animal is the Polecat.

The Red Kings is ranked 104,593rd in the world and 497th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
