Minion Sauve, began as a humble branch of the religion Gru.
Whenever the branch began arguing about moralistic values, they found that they worship the same God, but believe in entirely different value sets, similar to the two branches of Islam. Eventually, through time, the two branches got further separated and began using different books (scripts), and principle doctrines. Gru, which is Minionopolis’ religion, worships the first Despicable Me script, while Gruism worships the Despicable Me 2 script. In essence, Minion Sauve began as a theocracy, based around a general love for Gru and all things Minion. But however, as time took its course, and citizens began showing normal imperfections, a dictatorship was quickly instituted. The citizens of Minion Sauve cannot quite connect with their neighboring country of Minionpolis for at the diversion of the two branches, a slight linguistic fragmentation occurred and over time separated each language into two different languages. This in turn causes an awkward communication across border lines. All in all, Minion Sauve maintains a decent, yet somewhat sub-standard connection to the world through a maintained and, “cleaned-up”, source of news, and pop culture ideals and by trading internationally. All of these elements have kept Minion Sauve afloat. Minion suave is a very large, orderly nation, over time, after the dictatorship replaced what was once a theocracy, it began to develop a lack of religion. With only 1.9% of government expenditures going towards religion. It also has an absence of drug laws. The population of 577 million Minion suaveans are ruled strictly with a dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party becomes too wealthy or gains too much power. In their personal affairs, however, Minion suaveans are relatively unoppressed. The government balances the Welfare, Education, and Defense the most. The average income tax rate is 43.4%, but is significantly higher for the wealthier population. The Minion suavean economy, is broadly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 26,072 is distributed very evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens. Voting is compulsory. Crime is almost non-existent. Minion suave's national animal is the bear. The citizens have decent civil rights. The government is also relatively tolerant of religion. Minion Sauveans have total equality. Though there is some prejudice towards the purple minions in everyday activities, this is not authorized by the government and they receive the same political rights and treatment as the yellow minions. Minion Sauveans do not have the best political freedom, voting is obligatory, and the country is ruled by a very strict dictator, with a habit of becoming power-crazy, and creating random laws, limiting the citizen’s political freedoms. Minion Sauve’s major natural resources include uranium, rubber, and silver. These do not have a huge impact on the country’s economy because it is predominantly composed of privately owned small business and state-owned industry that does not utilize these resources very much. Minion Sauve does not currently have any strong trading partners, in part because of the linguistic conflict. Minion Sauve’s economy follows Rostow’s model because our economic take off must be led by few individual sectors.We are in the second stage, the transitional stage. Economic resource and production have not really affected urban development because our locations are significantly spaced out. Our nation follows the Rank-size rule because our 3rd largest city has ⅓ the population of our country's largest city, our rank four city has ¼ the population of our largest city, and so on. Our economic resources do not affect our relationships with other countries much do to our lack of trade, nor does it affect the transportation of infrastructure. Man has impacted the environment in positively through gardening, protection of the bear and national parks and forests, and a lack of heavily polluting factories. In Wallerstein's world-systems theory we’re peripheral because we do not contribute much to the global economy. We are to some extent underdeveloped, most likely due to our small amount of communication outside of our country, though we have achieved significant levels of of industrialization.
