Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Union of The United Republic of the Red Star is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Alexander with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 11.712 billion Red Starians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandratopolis. The average income tax rate is 66.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a Red Starian economy, worth a remarkable 2,231 trillion Red Star credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 190,539 Red Star credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Shanty towns of homeless immigrants are the ideal recruiting ground for terrorist organisations, President Alexander's new political program is often mockingly called 'Capitalism with a Bigtopian face', President Alexander's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United Republic of the Red Star's national animal is the ManBearPig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

The United Republic of the Red Star is ranked 91,375th in the world and 656th in Europeia for Most Authoritarian, with 0.14 Stalins.
