The Death Syndicate

The Felsinsel Anocracy of The Death Syndicate is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Governor Alberecht Fahrbach with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.359 billion Death Syndicate Members are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cemetery Hill. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Death Syndicatean economy, worth a remarkable 1,693 trillion Kroner a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 316,089 Kroner, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting, people forget to eat because they are too busy singing Governor Alberecht Fahrbach's praises, and maximum security Death Syndicatean subway stations inspire prison systems around the world. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Death Syndicate's national animal is the Plague, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Kriegskult.

The Death Syndicate is ranked 1,253rd in the world and 31st in The East Pacific for Most Armed, with 19.39 weapons per person.
