The Principality of Krovx Quebec
“Belgian Lives Matter”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Location: The Union of Democratic States
Regional Influence: Nipper
The Principality of Krovx Quebec is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 984 million Krovx Quebecois 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 enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Krovx Quebecois economy, worth 21.7 trillion Kovxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 22,004 Kovxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Interviewees for teaching jobs are waterboarded to "reveal undesirable histories", organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and the nation's soldiers often believe they're in the Air Force. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Krovx Quebec's national animal is the Emu.
