The Death Syndicate

LeaderAutarch Alberecht Fahrbach


The Felsinsel Anocracy of The Death Syndicate is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Autarch Alberecht Fahrbach with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.614 billion Death Syndicate Members are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cemetery Hill. The average income tax rate is 79.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Death Syndicatean economy, worth a remarkable 2,155 trillion Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 325,902 Kroner, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

The military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, half-submerged and flooded seaside hotels are technically still next to the beach, there's no representation without taxation, and military spending recently hit a new high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Death Syndicate's national animal is the Plague, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Kriegskult.

The Death Syndicate is ranked 262,753rd in the world and 12,268th in The East Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.64 crimes per hour.
