The Dominion Of The Central Nexus
**On behalf of His Imperial Sovereign, I, Overseer Mortarion Black of Diplomatic Concerns, will address you on information regarding His great nation. **
Current as of July 8, 2008:
Civil Rights: Few
Political Freedoms: Outlawed
The Dominion of The Central Nexus is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its strong anti-business politics. Its compassionate, cynical population of 333 million are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Healthcare are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 52%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing.
Hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over The Central Nexus, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The Central Nexus's national animal is the leviathan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the isk. (International Standard Kredit)
