Master Igor

The Heart of Master Igor is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.841 billion shadows are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.5%.

The very strong distorted economy, worth 304 trillion personae a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 52,199 personae, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Master Igor's national animal is the shadow.

Master Igor is ranked 176,395th in the world and 2nd in The Velvet Room for Highest Poor Incomes, with 15,841.66 Standard Monetary Units.
