The Empire of Rly8h is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Oshenwave with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.981 billion Old Ones, 366 million of whom are zombies, are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Necropolis. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Older economy, worth 63.7 trillion Sanities a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. Average income is 32,160 Sanities, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Women tell their friends they've been on crash diets rather than admit they were pregnant and have had terminations, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the government burgles the houses of holidaying citizens, and untold millions of Sanities are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rly8h's national animal is the Duck, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
