Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Blue Line of 98X is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Davis Wellington with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.302 billion 98Xers are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sylvania City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.9%.

The very strong 98X economy, worth 801 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 77,757 coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 235,689 per year while the poor average 19,950, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

All footpaths have tollbooths, a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, and government ministers claim to ride dragons to work. 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.

98X is ranked 110,887th in the world and 54th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Highest Poor Incomes, with 19,950.64 Standard Monetary Units.
