We welcome The Holy Empire of Blonesvia (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=blonesvia) in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region, as the 213rd member nation state.
The Holy Empire of Blonesvia is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws. Its cynical population of 16 million are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Religion & Spirituality, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 46%, 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 Pizza Delivery.
Elections have been outlawed, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, Harry Potter books are banned, and gambling is outlawed. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blonesvia's national animal is the meerkat and its currency is the deny.
