The People's Republic of Artemis
“Children of the Forest!”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Apprentice
The People's Republic of Artemis is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by General Secretary Amaltheia Kouris with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, soft-spoken computers, and public floggings. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.897 billion Artemisians 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Elpida. The average income tax rate is 87.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Artemisian economy, worth 625 trillion people's republic drachmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 105,987 people's republic drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, arbitration is mightier than the sword, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, and fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Artemis's national animal is the stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Atheism.
