The Red federation of ShadyStans is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by president with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 923 million ShadyStansians 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, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ilian. The average income tax rate is 87.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming ShadyStansian economy, worth 88.0 trillion cigs 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 95,342 cigs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, you don't need a smoking gun to arrest someone for promoting guns, children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is, and all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ShadyStans's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
