Welcome XThexDarkxSidex

We welcome The People's Republic of XTheDarkxSidex (, as the 195th member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The People's Republic of XThexDarkxSidex is a small, devout nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. Its compassionate, cynical population of 8 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Social Welfare, although Religion & Spirituality and Healthcare are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 45%, but much higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Soda Sales.
Married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, the government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector, XThexDarkxSidex's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and euthanasia is illegal. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. XThexDarkxSidex's national animal is the Eagles, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Euro.
