Regional Influence: Eminence Grise

Location: A Van Down by the River


The Elegance and Divine Council of THE HANGING JUDGE is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Lord Fortescue Witton-Smythe with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 23.615 billion THE HANGING JUDGEians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Public Transport. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SPINALTAP City. The average income tax rate is 90%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, school uniforms are compulsory, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, and only fully-fledged members of MENSA are allowed to vote. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. THE HANGING JUDGE's national animal is the stag, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is The Inquisition, and its currency is the whig.

THE HANGING JUDGE is ranked 1st in A Van Down by the River and 3,251st in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with 280 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
