LeaderReddy Toosevelt


The Holy Union of Progressitalia is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Reddy Toosevelt with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 967 million Progressitalians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gigantropolis. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Progressitalian economy, worth 118 trillion Bullies a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 122,535 Bullies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The comic book series 'Reddy Toosevelt and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, and Reddy Toosevelt's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Progressitalia's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Progressitalia is ranked 72,088th in the world and 3,023rd in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,195.13 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
