|Leader||Albrecht von Löwe|
The Nationalist Republic of Vielena is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Albrecht von Löwe with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.434 billion Vielenans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bervien. The average income tax rate is 53.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Vielenan economy, worth 156 trillion Viel Kotsars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,422 Viel Kotsars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
Busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, the government-sponsored autobiography 'An Albrecht von Löwe For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Albrecht von Löwe's supporters, and door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vielena's national animal is the fish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.
