The Arcane Brotherhood

The Hosttower of The Arcane Brotherhood is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.55 billion Arcane Brothers 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 medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Spirituality and Public Transport are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.1%.

The thriving Arcane economy, worth a remarkable 1,286 trillion gold pieces a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 77,706 gold pieces, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 313,796 per year while the poor average 12,843, a ratio of 24.4 to 1.

Workers have their fruitcake and eat it too, wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", and marine biology students are shocked to discover that a whale is a mammal. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Arcane Brotherhood's national animal is the pirate, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Krakenism.

The Arcane Brotherhood is ranked 222,031st in the world and 34th in Mordor for Most Politically Free, scoring 1.5 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
