The Order of Takhisis

The Holy Empire of The Order of Takhisis is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Empress Nain De'Wyren with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, ritual sacrifices, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 18.571 billion Takhisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neraka. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Order of Takhisisian economy, worth a remarkable 3,795 trillion Kyrs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 204,374 Kyrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, and conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Order of Takhisis's national animal is the Maesael, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Dark Lady.

The Order of Takhisis is ranked 46,191st in the world and 12th in The Forgotten Lands for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,833.84 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
