Having Children for materials sake

How bizarre is this concept? Russians get day off to procreate, then win prizes via the Crowhill blog.
Moscow - A Russian region of Ulyanovsk has found a novel way to fight the nation's birth-rate crisis: It has declared Sept. 12 the Day of Conception and for the third year running is giving couples time off from work to procreate.
If the couples have a baby on Russia's national day, June 12th, they can win prizes such as cars, TVs or other household items.

Seems fitting that the culture of death has to give away materialistic prizes to keep itself on life support.
