The Republic of BigRed23
“Unity, Discipline, Work”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Location: Crystal Falls
Regional Influence: Squire
The Republic of BigRed23 is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.94 billion BigRed23ians 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 Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.2%.
The thriving BigRed23ian economy, worth 147 trillion deniers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,255 deniers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 246,051 per year while the poor average 17,872, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.
Politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists, and local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BigRed23's national animal is the kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
