The Holy Empire of Bizarro Durlia
“Might Makes Right”
|Category: Corporate Police State|
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Holy Empire of Bizarro Durlia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Archbishop Alexander with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, ritual sacrifices, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.237 billion Bizarro Durlians 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Centre. Income tax is unheard of.
The enormous but underdeveloped Bizarro Durlian economy, worth a remarkable 1,151 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 112,520 dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,048,472 per year while the poor average 1,081, a ratio of 969 to 1.
Universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, military spending is on the increase, labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, and death row is annually emptied to feed the nation's hunger for televised murder-games. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Bizarro Durlia's national animal is the boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.
