Doom Soul

Population950 million



The Disputed Territories of Doom Soul is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 950 million Hunters love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sabrefang. The average income tax rate is 50.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Doom Soulian economy, worth 31.8 trillion Teeth a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 33,489 Teeth, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government demagogues have a devil of a time evading authorities, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", the mummified remains of former kings are apparently discovered every time a tourist loses their wallet, and the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Wolf Dung" has been declared a national treasure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Doom Soul's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Doom Soul is ranked 168,843rd in the world and 340th in First World Order for Largest Black Market, with 33.8 billion Standard Monetary Units.
