The Fallen Empire of Dephire is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Dread Emperor Tristan Skragg with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 21.081 billion Silence have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The tiny government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hell's Gate. The average income tax rate is 1.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Dephirean economy, worth a remarkable 5,700 trillion Gothics a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 270,424 Gothics, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Dephire, and trouble-makers are frequently turned in to the government to be 'recycled'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dephire's national animal is the Phoenix Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.
