The Sunken City of Deep Rapture is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Andrew Ryan with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.669 billion Deep Raptureans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rapture. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Deep Rapturean economy, worth a remarkable 2,423 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 315,985 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,585,456 per year while the poor average 35,284, a ratio of 44.9 to 1.

People often complain that they're going in circuitous routes all the time, the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Deep Rapture's national animal is the Sea Slug, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Deep Rapture is ranked 54,629th in the world and 1,398th in the Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 35,284.17 Standard Monetary Units.
