The Mysterious Black Hole of Roless
“We have NOTHING to do with our 97% disappearance rate.”
|Category: Psychotic Dictatorship|
Regional Influence: Vassal
The Mysterious Black Hole of Roless is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The High King of Roless with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, anti-smoking policies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.74 billion Rolessians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atchta. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.
The frighteningly efficient Rolessian economy, worth a remarkable 3,314 trillion Rezzats 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 amazing 428,177 Rezzats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting, politicians look weirdly alike, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roless's national animal is the Funky badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Funkyism.
