The Military Junta of Streidenberg
“To War! As We've No Other Choice!”
|Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Military Junta of Streidenberg is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by General Palisov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, ritual sacrifices, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.918 billion Streidenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Geataí Órga City. The average income tax rate is 75.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Streidenbergian economy, worth 305 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 104,784 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.
Heretic deviants are free to practice their deviance outside of Streidenberg, untold millions of Dollars are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance, and formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Streidenberg's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Palisovism.
