The Bloodsoaked Keep

Population1.179 billion


The Holy Empire of The Bloodsoaked Keep is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 1.179 billion ogres are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 25.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Bloodsoaked Keepian economy, worth 27.4 trillion rituals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 23,279 rituals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and meat is a luxury afforded only to the wealthy. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Bloodsoaked Keep's national animal is the sacrifice.

The Bloodsoaked Keep is ranked 80,332nd in the world and 16th in Shinka for Most Devout, with 119.98 Prayers Per Hour.
