The Sacred Whale

Population2.622 billion

LeaderSun Wu Kong

CurrencyLitters of Bulls Blood

The Experiment ZX09 of The Sacred Whale is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sun Wu Kong with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, public floggings, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.622 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 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sacred Whalean economy, worth 409 trillion Litters of Bulls Bloods a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 155,999 Litters of Bulls Bloods, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Songs in 4/4 time are simply too common for the musical cognoscenti, matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses. 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 105,411th in the world and 4,255th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 160.98 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
