The SSR of The Steephills
“The Truth will set you free”
|Category: Corrupt Dictatorship|
Location: The Communist Bloc
Regional Influence: Squire
The SSR of The Steephills is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Steephillsian People's Party with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.724 billion Steephillsians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Asgard. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Steephillsian economy, worth 620 trillion euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 131,360 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Glamping Steephillsians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, the government violently suppresses separatist movements, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Steephills's national animal is the Rooster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
