Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Galactic Empire of Particle is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by awesome with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.397 billion Mages are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, 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 1,090 trillion hugs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 247,900 hugs, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,081,600 per year while the poor average 35,903, a ratio of 30.1 to 1.

Virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in 不死, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, and airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted. 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 11,380th in the world and 35th in Yggdrasil for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,696.92 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
