The Republic of Cleric Beast
“By The People For The People”
|Category: Compulsory Consumerist State|
Location: The Gleason Regional District
Regional Influence: Truckler
The Republic of Cleric Beast is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.022 billion Cleric Beastians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.3%.
The very strong Cleric Beastian economy, worth 144 trillion francs a year, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Soda Sales, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 47,971 francs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 181,315 per year while the poor average 8,830, a ratio of 20.5 to 1.
Leader tells rebellious ministers to "drop and give me twenty", older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, and travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cleric Beast's national animal is the dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.
