The Bloodsoaked Keep

Population3.246 billion


The Holy Empire of The Bloodsoaked Keep is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 3.246 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 Administration. The average income tax rate is 27.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Bloodsoaked Keepian economy, worth 73.3 trillion rituals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 22,570 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 139,071st in the world and 134th in Shinka for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 68.24 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
