Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Blue Line of 98X is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Davis Wellington with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.983 billion 98Xers are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Public Transport, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sylvania City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.9%.

The thriving 98X economy, worth 473 trillion coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 59,352 coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 228,200 per year while the poor average 10,630, a ratio of 21.5 to 1.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, anyone dissenting from the state ideology is declared "mentally ill" and whisked away in a straitjacket, and motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 98X's national animal is the winged hamster, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

98X is ranked 1,590th in the Rejected Realms and 90,305th in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring 14.761 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
