Dux Gloriosus

Population310 million

The Holy Empire of Dux Gloriosus is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, frequent executions, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 310 million Dux Gloriosusians 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 juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.5%.

The all-consuming Dux Gloriosusian economy, worth 33.0 trillion Units a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 106,577 Units, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 485,035 per year while the poor average 14,316, a ratio of 33.9 to 1.

Nations that kill a Dux Gloriosusian can expect a strongly worded letter, it turns out that the government can have your guns by prying them out of your warm living hands, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and saying that someone looks a bit pale can be construed as hate speech. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dux Gloriosus's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Dux Gloriosus is ranked 48,335th in the world and 4th in The United Nations of Wow for Safest, scoring 101.43 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
