Twilight Ways

Population954 million

CapitalThe Ever-Shifting Septentrional
LeaderSawyeh Noor


The Empire of Twilight Ways is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sawyeh Noor with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 954 million Septentrionalists are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Ever-Shifting Septentrional. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Twilight Waysian economy, worth 94.9 trillion sestirtiis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 99,432 sestirtiis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", corrupt paupers spend taxpayer sestirtiis on liquor and tobacco, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and all the playground's a stage for Twilight Waysian schoolchildren. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Twilight Ways's national animal is the bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Twilight Ways is ranked 181,443rd in the world and 790th in Europeia for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.05 Crimes Per Hour.
