CapitalThe Necropolis


The Empire of Rly8h is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Oshenwave with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.306 billion Old Ones 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Necropolis. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Older economy, worth 29.2 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Tourism. Average income is 22,343 Sanities, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits. 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.

Rly8h is ranked 55,544th in the world and 1,145th in the South Pacific for Most Stationary, with 226.2482232566 Days.
