Location: the Rejected Realms

Regional Influence: Sprat


The Republic of Oldtowne is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, digital currency, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.846 billion Oldtowneans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Environment is also considered important, while Administration and Education are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Oldtownean economy, worth 589 trillion currencies a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 207,100 currencies, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,168,213 per year while the poor average 18,065, a ratio of 64.7 to 1.

The realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, wealthy students ride to school past mendicant dropouts, the government is cutting back on the number of political prisoners executed each year, and pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Oldtowne's national animal is the animal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Oldtowne is ranked 241st in the world and 5th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 14,343.79 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
