The Queen's State of Cromethius
|Category: Psychotic Dictatorship|
Location: Society of Commissioned Gentlemen
Regional Influence: Vassal
The Queen's State of Cromethius is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical population of 8.316 billion Cromethiusians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Cromethiusian economy, worth 34.1 trillion betales 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, 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 4,105 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
A nation-wide cull of deer is in effect, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, military spending is on the increase, and Cromethius has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cromethius's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
