The Suprime President Raphael

Population454 million

The Armed Republic of The Suprime President Raphael is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 454 million Raphaelians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Suprime President Raphaelian economy, worth 9.94 trillion New Reais a year, is highly specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 21,899 New Reais, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Acupuncture is routinely prescribed for intravenous drug addicts, recognised healthcare professionals treat diabetes with a grain of sugar in a barrel of water, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, and museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Suprime President Raphael's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Suprime President Raphael is ranked 142,622nd in the world and 104th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Politically Free, scoring 3.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
