The Chocolate Chip Cookie of Comfed
“Stone conquers human. Shrimp conquers stone.”
|Category: Psychotic Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Hermit
The Chocolate Chip Cookie of Comfed is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Shogun with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.204 billion Comfedians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Okatarin. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.
The powerhouse Comfedian economy, worth 531 trillion Golden Biscuits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 240,949 Golden Biscuits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.
Vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy, and nuclear physics is the most popular course at university. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Comfed's national animal is the mantis shrimp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Authoritarianizm.
