Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Galactic Empire of Particle is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by 黒魔道士 with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.922 billion Mages 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.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 不死. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Magical economy, worth a remarkable 1,426 trillion hugs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 289,720 hugs, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

Local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, and dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Particle's national animal is the Angel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Magic.

Particle is ranked 145,791st in the world and 262nd in Yggdrasil for Most Devout, with 4.65 Prayers Per Hour.
