LeaderThe High Priest


The High Priesthood of Raxion is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The High Priest with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.658 billion Raxonions are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melody. The average income tax rate is 90.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Raxonion economy, worth a remarkable 6,595 trillion Blessings a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 319,294 Blessings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers, videogames like 'Equalia: Knights of Self-Confidence' are proving inexplicably unpopular, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, and government officials say that if you close your eyes and wish really hard the budget deficit will go away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Raxion's national animal is the Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Entropy.

Raxion is ranked 233,694th in the world and 4th in The Imperial Legion for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -22.89 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
