Charon Azrael

The Nomadic Peoples of Charon Azrael is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its triple-decker prams, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 2.209 billion Deads enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 27.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Charon Azraelian economy, worth 42.4 trillion oboluses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 19,177 oboluses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Charon Azrael City, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, chess hooliganism is on the rise after the banning of organised sports, and visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories. Crime is relatively low. Charon Azrael's national animal is the zombie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Charon Azrael is ranked 100th in the world and 2nd in Osiris for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 8,170.74 Bank.
