Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Blue Line of 98X is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Davis Wellington with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, prohibition of alcohol, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.156 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, corrupt, 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 8.7%.

The very strong 98X economy, worth 476 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 58,439 coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 245,886 per year while the poor average 9,013, a ratio of 27.3 to 1.

Anyone dissenting from the state ideology is declared "mentally ill" and whisked away in a straitjacket, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, protests are illegal, and abortions are routinely performed in 98X's hospitals. 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 1,656th in the Rejected Realms and 93,910th in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -44 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
