The Rapture Republic

Population3.145 billion

LeaderChancellor John Mercer


The North Atlantic Settlement of The Rapture Republic is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor John Mercer with an iron fist, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.145 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, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rapture. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Aquarian economy, worth 456 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 145,217 Denarii, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 474,676 per year while the poor average 33,394, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

Women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, and wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them. 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 152,480th in the world and 19th in Cymopolia for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 45.7 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
