|Leader||A Random Supreme Leader|
The People's Republic of Poteramnsan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by A Random Supreme Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.423 billion Poterams 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poterahacsin. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Poteramnsanian economy, worth 138 trillion monies 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 large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. 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 97,388 monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Police wait behind troop deployments in order to shoot deserters, the Poterahacsin XV Regiment (aka "The Goat Starers") have yet to win a battle, endocrinology is a rapidly growing field of study, and religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Poteramnsan's national animal is the Mastiff, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
