El Rojo Octubre

The Federation of El Rojo Octubre is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Meiodaf with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.161 billion El Rojo Octubreans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pig's Mom. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.5%.

The frighteningly efficient El Rojo Octubrean economy, worth 220 trillion wires a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 101,845 wires, with the richest citizens earning 9.8 times as much as the poorest.

Mathematicians are hated by children across the country, industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, and advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. El Rojo Octubre's national animal is the dragonfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is No Knight.

El Rojo Octubre is ranked 128,983rd in the world and 7,306th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 49.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
