The Crony Republic of Genistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Master Zodiac with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, ubiquitous missile silos, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.381 billion Genistanians 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Subterropolis. The average income tax rate is 33.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Genistanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,220 trillion Cides a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 315,400 Cides, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and corporate executives continue to enjoy generous tax benefits while the public is taxed to the hilt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Genistan's national animal is the Anaconda, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bathorism.

Genistan is ranked 244,754th in the world and 754th in Europeia for Best Weather, with -642 Meters Of Sunlight.
