Location: The Versutian Federation

Regional Influence: Dominator


The Inviting Shadows of Ghostopolis is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Daemon Umbra with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.865 billion souls love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pallaith. The average income tax rate is 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient incorporeal economy, worth a remarkable 2,125 trillion skulls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 112,642 skulls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches, the nation's new currency features full-length portraits of President Daemon Umbra in ermine and velvet garb, Ghostopolis has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, and the government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ghostopolis's national animal is the ghost, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Reaperism.

Ghostopolis is ranked 9,369th in the world and 3rd in The Versutian Federation for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,608.92 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
