The Rapture Republic

Population2.404 billion



The North Atlantic Settlement of The Rapture Republic is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by VictorNet with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.404 billion Aquarians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rapture. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Aquarian economy, worth 328 trillion Denarii a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 136,464 Denarii, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

Giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, chocolate in The Rapture Republic has its flavour enhanced by the salty tears of enslaved factory workers, and pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Rapture Republic's national animal is the Leviathan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

The Rapture Republic is ranked 11,736th in the world and 3rd in Aeterna Publicae for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 378,817.57 Standard Monetary Units.
