The Death Syndicate

The Germanic Territories of The Death Syndicate is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Governor Alberecht Fahrbach with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.015 billion Death Syndicate Members 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cemetery Hill. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Death Syndicatean economy, worth 766 trillion Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 254,207 Kroner, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, and police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Death Syndicate's national animal is the Plague, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult of Sacrifice.

The Death Syndicate is ranked 1,877th in the world and 89th in The East Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 50,959 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
