Wolfcloak Rebels

Population805 million

LeaderCaius Cleraticus


The Pontic States of Wolfcloak Rebels is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Caius Cleraticus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 805 million Pontic Romans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, 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 Phasis. The average income tax rate is 29.4%.

The strong Pontic economy, worth 69.7 trillion sesterces a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,588 sesterces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

A massive campaign is underway to ensure the race of Wolfcloak Rebels remains pure, Pontic politicians are often described as having more style than substance, the tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, and old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wolfcloak Rebels's national animal is the Koroskvian, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Wolfcloak Rebels is ranked 54,403rd in the world and 40th in 21st Century Rome for Most Extreme, scoring 25.72 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
