Deadly Sorrow

Population4.61 billion


The Republic of Deadly Sorrow is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The devout population of 4.61 billion Deadly Sorrowians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 40.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Deadly Sorrowian economy, worth 264 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 57,291 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans, the nation's declaring that sharing nukes is caring, and the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deadly Sorrow's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Deadly Sorrow is ranked 134,309th in the world and 3,260th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 789.29 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
