The Sacred Whale

Population3.807 billion

LeaderSun Wu Kong


The Experiment ZX09 of The Sacred Whale is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sun Wu Kong with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and national health service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.807 billion Omnivores are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sancrosanct. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sacred Whalean economy, worth 635 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 166,977 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Sacred Whale's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", and politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Sacred Whale's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

The Sacred Whale is ranked 202,064th in the world and 7,323rd in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 40.92 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
