Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Order of The Assassins is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Alta´r Ibn-La'Ahad with a fair hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, complete lack of prisons, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 12.366 billion Ḥashshāshīn enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Masyaf. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ḥashshāshīn economy, worth a remarkable 2,473 trillion Silver Dragons 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 200,003 Silver Dragons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, and the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Assassins's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the Tenets of the Creed.

The Assassins is ranked 145,256th in the world and 4th in Omega Assassins for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 12.41 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
