The Kingdom of Ronkistan
“Be a man”

Regional Influence: Squire
The Kingdom of Ronkistan is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 829 million Ronkistanians 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 Administration. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Ronkistanian economy, worth 74.6 trillion bigmen 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, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. 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 90,046 bigmen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government spends billions to protect Ronkistan from a disaster that is one in a million, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, edutainment video games are taking Ronkistan's students to the next level, and sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ronkistan's national animal is the buffalo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
