The Republic of 4rstotzka
“Glory to Arstotzka!”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Location: the Rejected Realms
Regional Influence: Hatchling
The Republic of 4rstotzka is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed population of 212 million 4rstotzkans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 19.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient 4rstotzkan economy, worth 9.31 trillion credits a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,918 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Wedding bands come in pairs to form wedding manacles, children often kick eagles for amusement, summer science camps are regularly raided by narcotics police, and the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 4rstotzka's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.
