The Sacred Whale

The Experiment ZX09 of The Sacred Whale is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sun Wu Kong with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, digital currency, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.058 billion Omnivores are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sancrosanct. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sacred Whalean economy, worth 323 trillion Litters of Bulls Bloods a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,146 Litters of Bulls Bloods, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government provides its citizenry with the same mass produced rations, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, masterpieces by male artists are on display in the dumpsters behind the gallery, and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Sacred Whale's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

The Sacred Whale is ranked 134,186th in the world and 4,862nd in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -7.1 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
