The Rurkovich Imperium

The Constitutional Monarchy of The Rurkovich Imperium is a huge, safe nation, notable for its closed borders, museums and concert halls, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 226 million Imperial Subjects are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Subjugated economy, worth 13.1 trillion Shields a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 58,080 Shields, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, bars are packed at all hours, the decision to be oppressed is now made democratically, and the practice of capital punishment proves divisive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Rurkovich Imperium's national animal is the rainbow trout.

The Rurkovich Imperium is ranked 4,313th in the world and 6th in The Western Isles for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 11,887.11 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
