The Enlightened Society of Violenia is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Father with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory vegetarianism, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 935 million Violenians, 933 million of whom are zombies, 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Providence. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Violeni economy, worth 178 trillion credits 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 a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 impressive 120,032 credits, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.
People can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, groups of three or more trees are cut down in the name of 'child safety', and Harry Potter books are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Violenia's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Divinity.
