The Nuclear Cult

The Theocracy of The Nuclear Cult is a tiny, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 9 million Nuclear Cultists are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The weak Nuclear Cultist economy, worth 267 billion Uranium Ingots a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is 29,682 Uranium Ingots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government demagogues have a devil of a time evading authorities, former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, and adultery has been made a capital offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Nuclear Cult's national animal is the Imperial Rooster, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

The Nuclear Cult is ranked 170,477th in the world and 150th in 21st Century Rome for Most Influential, scoring 9 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
