The Dictatorship of East Pordan is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, state-planned economy, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 173 million East Pordinians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant East Pordanian economy, worth 1.80 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 10,381 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Former gun owners are finding that brandishing paintball guns isn't as satisfying as the real thing, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and charged suspects often have to wait years before the courts have room to judge their trial. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Pordan's national animal is the brown bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
