Old Tryst

The Holy Empire of Old Tryst is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 510 million Old Trystians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Demon's Steps. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Old Trystian economy, worth 54.0 trillion oaths 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 an impressive 105,807 oaths, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens have to dodge their neighbors' drones while getting the morning paper, lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies, to say that military robots are inclined towards violence is offensive, and former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Old Tryst's national animal is the harbor pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Old Tryst is ranked 132,169th in the world and 1,431st in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 501.36 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
