The Republic of Barkolis 1
“Might Makes Right”
|Category: Corporate Police State|
Location: the Rejected Realms
Regional Influence: Hatchling
The Republic of Barkolis 1 is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 231 million Barkolis 1ians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.9%.
The very strong Barkolis 1ian economy, worth 12.3 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 53,234 kronor, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.
Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Barkolis 1's national animal is the cobra.
