The Grand Republic of Versail is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Commandant Drummond with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, ban on automobiles, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.446 billion Versais 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oxsana. The income tax rate is 100%.
The frighteningly efficient Versailian economy, worth a remarkable 8,158 trillion Rubles 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 496,053 Rubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,562,919 per year while the poor average 120,380, a ratio of 13.0 to 1.
Lobster tastes best when it is red, 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists, the Versail Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', and the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Versail's national animal is the Brown Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orthodox Christian.
