The Incorporated States of Favored
“Peace and Justice”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Location: The East Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Incorporated States of Favored is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Mason with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, pith helmet sales, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.58 billion Favoredians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tartarus. The average income tax rate is 58.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Favoredian economy, worth 437 trillion stones 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 large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 impressive 122,123 stones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The Favored Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, citizens wishing to be parents must undertake a series of gruelling tests to evaluate their capabilities, hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success, and only adults may purchase violent video games. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Favored's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.
