Some decisions have unexpected negative impacts on civil rights and economy… Like, refusing to subsidy some dying industry from the past can worsen economy, and refusing tax cuts to religion can lower civil rights… The reason for choosing dictatorship was to try and reduce the amount of election-related dilemmas. I think it didn’t work, but that probably helped achieve the top 5% for the world’s most extreme award ^^
Category: Benevolent Dictatorship
Civil Rights: Superb
Political Freedoms: Outlawed
The Armed Republic of Bannannas is a large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 50 million enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.
The tiny, liberal, pro-business government devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10%. A healthy private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Cheese Exports and Retail.
Psychological disorders are a taboo subject, major archaeological findings are frequently bulldozed to make way for new buildings, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, and Bannannas is notorious for its citizens’ infidelity. Crime — especially youth-related — is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Bannannas’s national animal is the Ape, which is also the nation’s favorite main course, and its currency is the Bannanna.
