The Hellish Fiefdom of ThePlague is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Corvus Pragis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, lack of airports, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.837 billion Patients 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Spirituality, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Plague. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Plaguean economy, worth 334 trillion besants a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 182,024 besants, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,115,151 per year while the poor average 13,040, a ratio of 85.5 to 1.

People think "siege mentality" is a positive trait, people spend a lot on hair and nails, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and classes are regularly interrupted by drunken children. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. ThePlague's national animal is the Rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Satanism.

ThePlague is ranked 129,520th in the world and 4,997th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 32.37 Effective Tax Rate.
