Rise and Fall

Population4.132 billion


The Republic of Rise and Fall is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, ritual sacrifices, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 4.132 billion Rise and Fallians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.0%.

The Rise and Fallian economy, worth 210 trillion deniers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,827 deniers, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Rise And Fall City Times is sold out, the 'sing-a-long with Leader' album is a popular souvenir, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rise and Fall's national animal is the dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Rise and Fall is ranked 203,317th in the world and 4th in Calvin Coolidge Fan Club for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -6.39 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
