The Cryptocracy of The Final Horseman
“Vigil per noctem”

Regional Influence: Truckler
The Cryptocracy of The Final Horseman is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Red Ael with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.298 billion Horsemen 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The City. The average income tax rate is 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The a Horseman economy, worth 823 trillion Assembly Noteses 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 dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 50,535 Assembly Noteses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The deceased are buried mostly to hide them from state-sanctioned corpse-collectors, it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, and concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Final Horseman's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
