The Empire of Standuble is a fledgling, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its strong anti-business politics. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 5 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."
The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded morass -- is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 41%, 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 Uranium Mining.
Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Standuble's national animal is the Three-headed Behemoth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Warlord.
