=============
The Issue:
After a series of bloody wars between the nations of Maxtopia and North Bigtopia, fights have broken out in the streets between immigrants in People’s Republic Of Hurtful Thoughts who came from the warring nations.

The Debate
I may be a quiet old man, but I believe that these ethnic disputes are none of the government's business. It's not our war anyway, so it's not our problem. I'm sure if you leave it alone, it'll work itself out.”

"It's not our war? It's not our war?" cries infamous Hurtian-born fascist Samuel Abraham
Roxanne. "Well maybe it's time it became our war! Hurtful Thoughts should take a more active, and by 'active' I mean 'hostile', role in international politics! This ethnic squabbling will be over when the war is over, and WE can end that war and purge the impure! Hurt 'em plenty!!

Pretty clear who won that one...

Recent events:
-The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups
-The national government has been dissolved by revolutionary insurgents
-Hurtful Thoughts was reclassified from "Compulsory Consumerist State" to "Capitalist Paradise".
-Politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes
Major Cities:
Hurtmeplenty - Industrial district. Has Airport, Port and weapons factory.

Hurtenberg - Financial (banking) Has Airport and weapons factory (landlocked).

Kampfenburg - Former Capital, now tourist hub. Has Airport, Port and weapons factory.
-Hurtful Square - Parade grounds within Kampfenburg, also the only place where one may legally protest in public.

NewRoanoke Island -Home of the NRI naval=base and weapons proving-ground.

Other:
The Great Motte - The border grounds, the interactive reality-TV blood sport "Who wants to be a Hutrian?" is set here.

Joycamps - Internment camps for political prisioners.
Hurtian Marine Corps 4 million
These units are generally act as a policing unit, but has a secondary duty to provide the main spearhead in an amphibious operation.

Hurian Marine Raiders (sub-unit of Marine Corps)
These units are primarily used as pathfinders or frogmen for main offensives, as well as training of induginous militaries, they have little or no provisions for acting as a policing unit.

Navy (Also a sub unit)

Hurtian Army 6 Million
Though not strictly special forces, these highly trained and motivated troops are trained extensively as a rapid reaction force.

Hurtful Outcomes Mercenaries + international PMCs 60 million
Nothing overly special with their training, these 'soldiers' make up the bulk of the Hutrian military. Sometimes these forces are used to provide assistance to nations that otherwise would resualt in a nuclear confrontation against the Hurtians.

Usually these forces are used in conjunction with conventional forces during war, in the meantime, they sell their services to the highest bidder.

Local private Militias 20 million
Many of these 'militias' are simply a means to get around the vehicle-ban, so that they and their co-workers can show up to work in a technical.

Also note: Unregistered and otherwise 'unfriendly' technicals may be destroyed on contact. So please keep your road-rage to yourself.

Central Hurtian Intellegence (And security) Agency, CHIA or CHISA 2 million.
This group is shrouded in secrecy, and is the unit responsiable for maintaining order within the borders while keeping tabs on nations worldwide. Some say they make back-dealings with terrorists to achieve this; but most agree that they are demons without souls who walk the mortal realm, since they seem to have an uncanny knack of knowing all.
WIP

Terrorism? In my country?!
Yes. Revolutionary governments rule via fear, and therefore, artificial competition through dissenting actions are financially encouraged, and then dealt with for everyone else's amusement.

This also comes in handy if we don't want our government's fingerprints on the guns used in certain assassinations.

However, some have survived without the government's unofficial approval, being quite the nuisance.

Due to population-cuts, military-size currently being revised

The People's Republic of Hurtful Thoughts is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television.

We apologize in advance for the inconvienence, but trust us, it is of greater inconvienence to us.
