The People's Republic of East Preusen is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 355 million East Preusenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 64.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant East Preusenian economy, worth 6.18 trillion Volksmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 17,421 Volksmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself, and nobody knows why the caged Eagle sings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Preusen's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
