LeaderEl Don de Paradis


The Federal Republic of RetroBeaners is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by El Don de Paradis with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 1.088 billion RetroBeanersians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradis. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient RetroBeanersian economy, worth 147 trillion Libras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 135,314 Libras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The well-to-do in The North Pacific are never on time for important appointments, stern tutting by international commentators has persuaded RetroBeaners to disarm, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, and government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. RetroBeaners's national animal is the Monarch, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Freeism.

RetroBeaners is ranked 223,440th in the world and 9,016th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.45 Obesity Rate.
