Babylon Gate

The Holy Empire of Babylon Gate is a very large, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 153 million Babylons are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 28.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Babylonian economy, worth 14.9 trillion Dragons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,074 Dragons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Punitive tariffs protect local industry, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Babylon Gate's national animal is the Hydra, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Babylon Gate is ranked 92,756th in the world and 1,038th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,954.21 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
