|Leader||Sun Wu Kong|
The Experiment ZX09 of The Sacred Whale is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Sun Wu Kong with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.936 billion Omnivores 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, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sancrosanct. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Sacred Whalean economy, worth 656 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 166,819 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The country is governed by a clique of political insiders known colloquially as The Establishment, royal mothers accustomed to baby-talk assure the troops "we gweatly wespect your service; yes, we do", airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, and people talk about things being better when men were men. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Sacred Whale's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.
