The Democratic Republic of Razlozhenie

I have my own Country on Nation State and have just read the lastest description of it. Made me laugh! For those of you who don't know this is a website where you creat your own country and decide how it is run, each day a new issue appears and you decide which course to take. NB the word 'Razlozhenie' mean 'Corruption' basically it amused me as most 'Democratic Republics' are anything but. Below is the describtion of my country, enjoy!

"The Democratic Republic of Razlozhenie is a small, devout nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 18 million are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The large, moralistic government devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Healthcare and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16%. A robust private sector is led by the Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail industries.

Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, thieves are flogged in public for their crimes, bicyclists are banned from major roads, and the government is seen to favor Catholics. Crime is a problem. Razlozhenie's national animal is the bear and its currency is the rose.

Razlozhenie is ranked 11th in the region and 48,112th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department."
