The Royal New Lunar Republic

Population2.366 billion

CapitalNew Lunaris
LeaderPrince shadowbolt bloodmane


The Constitutional Monarchy of The Royal New Lunar Republic is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prince shadowbolt bloodmane with an even hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cheerful population of 2.366 billion Royal New Lunar Republicians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Lunaris. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Royal New Lunar Republician economy, worth 348 trillion bits a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 147,308 bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and Prince shadowbolt bloodmane's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Royal New Lunar Republic's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

The Royal New Lunar Republic is ranked 115,879th in the world and 3,954th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 71.9 billion Standard Monetary Units.
