Dreadful Sagittarius

Leaderthe Archontes


The Phanes Republic of Dreadful Sagittarius is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Archontes with a fair hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 23.357 billion Anthropos 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — prioritizes Law & Order, although Public Transport, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gytheia. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Anthropos economy, worth a remarkable 1,018 trillion Credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 43,585 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, mathematicians are hated by children across the country, and citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dreadful Sagittarius's national animal is the Kentaurus and its national religion is Pantheism.

Dreadful Sagittarius is ranked 256,828th in the world and 67th in The Local Cluster for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -12.96 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
