We welcome The Kingdom of Richard of Mondragon (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=Richard+of+Mondragon), as the 220th member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Kingdom of Richard of Mondragon is a tiny, economically powerful nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5 million are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.
The minute, moralistic, pro-business government, or what there is of one, devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. Income tax is unheard of. A robust private sector is led by the Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports industries.
Crime is a serious problem. Richard of Mondragon's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the sterling pound.
