We welcome The Republic of Ypsilon of Centaurus (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=Ypsilon+of+Centaurus), as the 166th member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Republic of Ypsilon of Centaurus is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons. Its hard-working, cynical population of 5 million are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 19%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Soda Sales.
Crime is a problem, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Ypsilon of Centaurus's national animal is the yplion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the yparsec.
