New Ropakstadt

Population744 million


CurrencyIron Mark

The Ballistikovian Iron Union of New Ropakstadt is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 744 million Ropaks are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sablefisch. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Ropakstadtian economy, worth 71.2 trillion Iron Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is 95,659 Iron Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

On-duty Air New Ropakstadt flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class, colleges adhere to rigid ethnic quotas for admissions, young criminals are told they'll go to bed without supper if they do it again, and drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Ropakstadt's national animal is the Robin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Ropakstadt is ranked 23,913th in the world and 584th in the Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 24.6 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
