The Popular Armed Republic of Ofrettia
|Category: Iron Fist Consumerists|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Popular Armed Republic of Ofrettia is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Long Jun Huo IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 848 million Ofrettis are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The large, corrupt, moralistic, 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 Ko Mei Chi. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ofrettian economy, worth 124 trillion kaponns 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Information Technology, 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 146,276 kaponns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
It takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, and wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ofrettia's national animal is the offretian mamba, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
