The Caer Sidi Royal Post

Population9.096 billion

LeaderAynia and Carrot Moreaux


The Office of The Caer Sidi Royal Post is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Aynia and Carrot Moreaux with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 9.096 billion Caer Sidi Royal Postians 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastion. The average income tax rate is 48.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Caer Sidi Royal Postian economy, worth 75.8 trillion coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 8,328 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International terrorists often get their weapons supply in The Caer Sidi Royal Post, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, and the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Caer Sidi Royal Post's national animal is the bunny, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ayniaism.

The Caer Sidi Royal Post is ranked 201,331st in the world and 170th in Caer Sidi for Most Patriotic, with 4.93 flags saluted per person per day.
