Basic Information Edit
- Ryuukami is a medium sized, developing, and maturing nation with citizens primarily of a Mixed ethnicity consisting of Japanese, Chinese, German, and American immigrants, who are called Ryuuhito. Because of past horrifyingly destructive wars the levels of technology are abundant. Its citizens pay extremely high taxes and in a recent poll headed by the Poll-Taker's Guild of Kotobachi, 41% of Ryuuhito want lowered taxes while 39% believe the current levels are adequate, and the other 20% do not care. Most citizens do understand that all money taken by the government is towards the betterment of the country. The citizens of Ryuukami work diligently to produce Lead and Gems as tradable resources for their nation. Contrary to belief, it is not an aggressive country, but firmly believes in attacking viciously to protect its citizens by any means sans nuclear weaponry. The military of Ryuukami has been positioned at all harbors and is arresting all drug traffickers and destroying their wares. The only recreational drug legalized within the country is marijuana (by vote) which, according to polls taken on 6/10/09, only 20% of the population uses. Ryuukami allows its citizens to openly protest their government, even if it means violence. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first. Ryuukami believes in the freedom of speech and feels that it is every citizen's right to speak freely about their government. The government gives foreign aid when it can, but looks to take care of its own people first in this time of mass rebuilding. As the country nearly unanimously voted (94% to 5%) voted, Ryuukami will not make deals with another country that has a poor history of inhuman treatment of its citizens.
