Black Shirts

Population2.243 billion


The Social Republic of Black Shirts is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 2.243 billion Black Shirts 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 53.4%.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Black Shirtsian economy, worth 81.3 trillion Sesterces a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 36,238 Sesterces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Black Shirts, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and Black Shirts is increasingly belligerent on the international stage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Black Shirts's national animal is the Aquila.

Black Shirts is ranked 38,170th in the world and 3rd in the United Federation of Fascist States for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 3,422 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
