LeaderOracle Artemis


The Goddess of Death of Sundred is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Oracle Artemis with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 12.698 billion Sundredians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delphini. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sundredian economy, worth a remarkable 1,650 trillion Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,982 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nothing gets the party jumping like Oracle Artemis specifying how high, late night adverts for breast milk co-ops regularly win pornography industry awards, a video of Oracle Artemis wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, and rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sundred's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Dragonian.

Sundred is ranked 78,107th in the world and 3,742nd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,494.78 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
