The Republic of NPOs Fist
“The fist shall crush all enemies of the NPO”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Republic of NPOs Fist is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 3.461 billion NPOs Fistians 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 large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 52.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped NPOs Fistian economy, worth 90.0 trillion Dollars 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, extremely specialized black market in Trout Farming. 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 26,013 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. NPOs Fist's national animal is the Animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
