The Revolutionary Republic of Falkland Union is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vladimir Jesnik with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.291 billion Falklandis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Smorchenez. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Falkland Unionian economy, worth 175 trillion Rubles a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 76,455 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
In a baffling press conference Vladimir Jesnik proudly dismantled a broken door, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, and the new Falklandi Sheep Supremacy Party is faring well in the polls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Falkland Union's national animal is the Falklandi Sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
