The Demonborn

Population13.65 billion

CapitalHellbrood City
FaithThe Order of Chaos


The Empire of The Demonborn is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Pheonix with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.65 billion Demonborn enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hellbrood City. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Demonborn economy, worth a remarkable 1,276 trillion Gems a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,551 Gems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Pheonix to meetings with foreign heads of state, the tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets, a sudden shout of "surprise!" does not herald a party for teachers, and biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Demonborn's national animal is the Hellhound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Order of Chaos.

The Demonborn is ranked 144,935th in the world and 111th in The Alterran Republic for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -11.53 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
