The Three States of Fortuna

The Skadi Church of The Three States of Fortuna is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by High Commander Lyone with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, disturbing lack of elderly people, and lack of airports. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.458 billion Fortunans 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Education, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Destino. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Fortunan economy, worth a remarkable 6,114 trillion Trutas 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 an amazing 454,358 Trutas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, there is no such thing as an innocent fling in the Fortunan military, and no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Three States of Fortuna's national animal is the Red Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Skadism.

The Three States of Fortuna is ranked 1,004th in the world and 13th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 10,908.58 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
