The Nergal Empire

Population10.305 billion

CapitalThe Underworld


The Peaceful Underworld of The Nergal Empire is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nergal with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 10.305 billion Empireans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Underworld. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 1,669 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 161,968 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts, members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, and praying before a battle is a court-martial offence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Nergal Empire's national animal is the Undead, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Nergal Empire is ranked 2,539th in the world and 4th in The Atheist Empire for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,053.33 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
