The Republic of Agora Protergatis is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, devout population of 130 million Agora Protergatisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Spirituality, and Defense also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 29.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Agora Protergatisian economy, worth 2.99 trillion Sandels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 23,015 Sandels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Agora Protergatis City to enjoy their national art, the government seizes all major gold finds, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Agora Protergatis's national animal is the Voter.
