The Old Talmyrox

Population18 million

CurrencySarhaen Credit
AnimalJalaor of Ayra

The Dominion of The Old Talmyrox is a tiny, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 18 million ancient Ghashyr are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.3%.

The thriving ancient economy, worth 1.23 trillion Sarhaen Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 68,194 Sarhaen Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 281,616 per year while the poor average 10,856, a ratio of 25.9 to 1.

There are no minimum wage laws, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, voting is voluntary, and swarms of present-laden delivery drones blot out the sun before major holidays. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Old Talmyrox's national animal is the Jalaor of Ayra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Old Talmyrox is ranked 42,600th in the world and 1,558th in The East Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring 52.73 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
