|Faith||The Great Machine God Pantheon|
The Enlightened Empire of Abyssal Phantasm is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Soma with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.005 billion Abyssal Phantasmians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elysium. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Abyssal Phantasmian economy, worth 629 trillion Ultimas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 209,350 Ultimas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is, demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked, and the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Abyssal Phantasm's national animal is the Divine Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Great Machine God Pantheon.
