Nations Update

The Empire of Krimson Phoenix is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate population of 262 million 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and the Environment. The average income tax rate is 82%, and even higher for the wealthy. A small private sector is dominated by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry.

The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds [now that is funny], and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Krimson Phoenix's national animal is the phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the talon.

Wow, your taxes manage to be higher than mine!

The Holy Empire of Kristivania is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. Its compassionate, cynical population of 832 million 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, the Environment, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 74%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising fourteen-year-old boys selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, and the government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kristivania's national animal is the unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the rupie.

Kristivania is ranked 60th in the region and 91,362nd in the world for Most Subsidized Industry.
