The Death Anecdote

Population6.924 billion

CapitalInferno Lykos
LeaderBaridi Vivace


The Empire of The Death Anecdote is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Baridi Vivace with a fair hand, and notable for its fear of technology, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.924 billion Death Anecdotans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inferno Lykos. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Death Anecdotean economy, worth 428 trillion Gurts a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 61,906 Gurts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bitter pastors forced to officiate gay marriage 'accidentally' pronounce couples "husband and abomination", sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour, angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes, and innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Death Anecdote's national animal is the Raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Death Anecdote is ranked 96,575th in the world and 1,714th in the Rejected Realms for Most Stationary, with 201.31905171128 days.
