Anything Else you want to add?

People are free to create any businesses they desire but the government is always the partial owner unless it is a media company. This allows the government to veto any decisions that could prove to be damaging to the citizens of Argyrland or its environment. The idea is to create an environment where competition is encouraged but the government may still keep a close eye on corporations and ensure that the prosperity of the nation is at heart.

All needs are provided for in Argyrland, the government provides small apartments that the people may live in for free. Fruits, vegtables, certain spices, certain meats, milk, bread, eggs and other basic food are payed for by the government and may be picked up at a grocery store free of charge. In both cases, the citizens must pay for upgrades from what is provided using their own income. Things that are deemed to be “Luxuries” by the government, such as T-Bone steaks, candies, lobster and other things that are unhealthy, unnecessary or both must be purchased using ones own money. A similar policy is for larger housing/property. If one wants a nicer home than what is provided, they must pay for it and maintain it themselves.

If yes to the above question, are currencies other than the national currency legal? (this includes Cryptocurrencies like Bytecoin) For some transactions (where accepted) and exchanging, non-sanctioned/embargoed international currencies are legal. Bytecoin :) is legal, but the Bundesbank has made major moves towards its regulation (and normalisation), the situation being the same with the other cryptocurrencies we allow.

Anything Else you want to add? Emergency Powers and Imperial Prerogatives are archaic and have never been fully used. They do exist but could never be exploited without a total coup at any rate. The government has interests in some critical industries and plays an important economic role, but in no way engages in the use socialist planning systems and employs a well-regulated but red tape-free industrial policy.

Voltrovia is low-tax (effective low tax, not Bush low-tax...) but has a large and potent government budget due to its powerful fiscal-economic situation.

Where must we go, we who wander this wasteland, in search for our better selves?
In Egypt's sandy silence, all alone,
Stands a gigantic Leg, which far off throws
The only shadow that the Desert knows:—
"I am great OZYMANDIAS," saith the stone,
"The King of Kings; this mighty City shows
"The wonders of my hand." The City's gone,
Nought but the Leg remaining to disclose
The site of this forgotten Babylon.

We wonder, and some Hunter may express
Wonder like ours, when thro' the wilderness
Where London stood, holding the Wolf in chace,
He meets some fragment huge, and stops to guess
What powerful but unrecorded race
Once dwelt in that annihilated place.

Type of Government: Federational, tricameral, desynchronized, Hani-based democracy
Is the legislature Independent? Depends on your definition, I would say.
Was the leader democratically voted in? There are 3 leaders. While they were voted into the respective parliaments, the parliaments vote for the Lentine Mje'he
Was every member of legislature elected democratically? Yes (there occasionally are some issues, maybe some random backbencher ws elevated over the limit by cheating, but this is seldom and if discovered very harshly punished)

Do police need warrants with a probable cause? yes

Are soft drugs legal? mostly (there is a muddle of rekijonal and nantical laws), drugs you create for your own consumption are legal
Are hard drugs legal? depends (there is a muddle of rekijonal and nantical laws), drugs you create for your own consumption are legal

Economic Freedoms:

What is the income tax rate? 0%. The government knowing your income is an unacceptable breach of the citizens' right to pivacy

What is the sales tax rate? Depends on the class the good is in. From 0% for food to 90% for recreational drugs (Rejistania's income is mostly from sales taxes)

How regulated is the economy from a 1-10 scale, 1 being no government regulations, 10 being a Communist Economy 3

Is education privatized? optionally
Is the law privatized? no
Is the government privatized? no

If yes to the above question, are currencies other than the national currency legal? (this includes Cryptocurrencies like Bytecoin) yes
Is there a Central Bank? yes


Anything Else you want to add? Rejistania is a developing nation, with a somewhat bizarre government and movements calling for the dissolution of the union, so in some ways, it is rather centralistic (having a national language for example) in other respects, it is sometimes surprisingly free (while you need car insurance, you do not need government driving test and licenses and don't have to register your car in a government database, it is almost impossible for the government to use eminent domain)

Postby The Batorys » Tue May 20, 2014 3:47 pm

Nation Name (Full): The Empire Belonging to the Matriarch of the Batory Clan (it doesn't translate well, which is why in English either "The Batory Empire" or "The Empire of the Batorys" is used).
Type of Government: Absolute monarchy at the imperial level, with positions in national administration appointed on a meritocratic basis, with provinces governed in a semi-autonomous quasi-federalist manner. Provincial government types vary; some are constitutional monarchies, others are republics, etc.
Is the legislature Independent? At the imperial level, no. Who gets to decide how your property is run? You? Or groups of your tenants? Provincial legislatures are somewhat independent on matters concerning only their own provinces.
Was the leader democratically voted in? No. Tenants don't get to vote for their landlord. The Empress inherited the Empire from her mother, and so on.
Was every member of legislature elected democratically? See above.
Does the nation have fair, free and open elections? At the provincial level, yes. Having an unfair election would demonstrate that a province perhaps shouldn't be allowed to rule itself without imperial intervention.
Is the government Constitutionally Limited? No, the only limitation is the awareness that competent management is needed or people will live elsewhere.

Civil Freedoms:

Are people allowed to say whatever they want? Not quite. Criticism of Batory policy is allowed, but advocating to overthrow them is not, because why would they allow people to suggest stealing from them?
Are people allowed to own as many weapons as they want to? No. It is fine to own weapons for self-defense, home defense, or defense of one's loved ones, but military hardware is for the military.
Are people allowed to practice whatever religion they wish to practice The Empress is not concerned with her citizens' spiritual allegiances, only their earthly ones.
Are people allowed to associate with whomever they want to Yes, though occasionally one might be judged by the company one keeps. This usually only comes up in cases of organized crime.
Do citizens have a right to privacy? Mostly, yes. What subjects do in their own homes is not deemed to be the business of the Batory clan.
Do police need warrants with a probable cause? The police do, yes.
Is murder, theft and other criminal activities legal? That's an oddly phrased question. Criminal activity is illegal by definition, as if it were legal, it would not be criminal. Murder is illegal, although dueling is allowed provided there are written agreements and witnesses. Theft is, of course, illegal. Doing other subjects harm is generally why things are illegal. Some things, though, are legal that may not be elsewhere, public nudity, for example.
Are soft drugs legal? Yes.
Are hard drugs legal? Define "hard." Coca and opium are both legal. Some other substances aren't.

Economic Freedoms:

What is the income tax rate? Taxation, or rent, varies by income, and to some degree by province.
What is the Corporate Tax Rate? Variable.
What is the sales tax rate? There is no imperial level sales tax. Some provinces have sales tax, some don't.
What is the tariff rate? Varies widely depending on origin of goods and on the type of goods.
How regulated is the economy from a 1-10 scale, 1 being no government regulations, 10 being a Communist Economy Not sure if this really can apply. The Batorys manage their domain how they see fit. It's probably about "six" or "seven" on this type of scale, though in some specific cases it can be "one" or "ten."
Are roads and other infrastructure privatized? Depends on the definition. The Empire can be considered private property, so in a sense, yes, but also no, in that the Batorys provide the roads through their rule.
Is welfare and healthcare privatized? Same as above, though health care varies by province. It will probably all be Batory-provided soon.
Is education privatized? Same as above.
Is the law privatized? See above.
Is the government privatized? You could say that yes, it is, as the Empire is a family holding.
Is there a national currency, if so, is it backed by something hard? Yes, and it is backed by the might of the Batory clan. "Hard" currencies are idiotic, because they rely on elements that the society has little to no control over, and cause deflation if production of whatever's backing said currency doesn't keep up with population growth, leading to negative interest rates and therefore the end of loans.
If yes to the above question, are currencies other than the national currency legal? (this includes Cryptocurrencies like Bytecoin) Legal... but considered worthless.
Is there a Central Bank? Not in the sense as say, the RL USA. Currency is controlled by the Batorys directly.


Anything Else you want to add? The Batory Empire arose, originally, as simply the tribal territory of the Batory moroii clan. Those not of the clan but living in their territory were subject to their rule. While thousands of years have passed, the Batorys still think of the Empire this way, and consider it to be their property, technically owned by the Empress, their clan matriarch. While functionally it resembles other states, the fact that legally the entire thing is their private property does result in a few differences from the norm, here and there.
