The Blue Line of 98X is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Davis Wellington with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 9.104 billion 98Xers are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Public Transport, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sylvania City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.1%.
The very strong 98X economy, worth 623 trillion coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 68,528 coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 206,511 per year while the poor average 17,728, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.
The police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and the nation leads the Rejected Realms in per capita stalking. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 98X's national animal is the winged hamster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
