The Democratic Republic of Passionis is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 309 million Passionisians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Passionisian economy, worth 7.11 trillion Kemms a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports. Average income is 23,025 Kemms, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There's sophisticated talk of revolution within the ever-expanding mining colonies, people typically base their votes on which party has the cutest logo, hell is not always other people, and citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Passionis's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
