The Democratic Autocracy of Our Town Restored
“Equality in prosperity!”
|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Regional Influence: Sprat
The Democratic Autocracy of Our Town Restored is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Starlight Glimmer with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, strictly enforced bedtime, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical, humorless population of 9.146 billion Citizens are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Our Town. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Our Townian economy, worth 806 trillion Bits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,132 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, Starlight Glimmer is adamant that ponies aren't just for little girls, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Our Townian language, and Brasilistanis face layers of paperwork in a different language just to visit a doctor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Our Town Restored's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Equalism.
