The Country of MajorityEdit
The Country of Majority is a country that overthrew a corrupt monarch, only to take democracy to a Super Duper High School Level, killing thousands of civilians in executions decided by majority vote, eventually reducing the population to one sad, lonely little man.
For a long time the country was a monarchy until about ten years ago the king was a tyrant. He spent his time praising and drink about his palace while the crops failed and the slip into an economic ruin. Anyone who was against him was strung up and dropped from the castle wall and the rest where under constant threat. Finally the people organized and revolted. they arrest the royal family with minimal loses. they then decide they where tired of having one man pull all the shots so they decided the best way to do things was with majority vote the first vote was to kill the king to with the overwhelming majority vote yes. he was executed in the same fashion he had executed the people. For a time this system of majority vote worked, but a small fraction of the population disagreed saying it took to long and they needed fewer people with decision making power. The others where so angry they voted on whether to kill them, and the majority said to kill them. Basically everyone disagreed with each other until finally, the country consisted of only one lonely man.
On the way to the Country of Majority, three railroad workers worked on the railroad leading away from the country. One of the men cleaned the rails, the one behind him dismantled them, and the final man repaired them. They left their homes 50 years ago to support each of their families and they have no idea the rail road company they worked for is long gone and that their family members are all dead.
Background and Absolute DemocracyEdit
The country was once a monarchy, but the king's tyrannical rule led to the revolt of his subjects and serfs, leading to the introduction of an absolute democracy, where all political matters are decided by majority vote of all the residents in the country. The first vote they made was what to do with the overthrown, tyrannical king. it was a unanimous vote, with 98% of the majority wanting the king to be eviscerated and executed. After that, they begun voting on all kind of things for a while it was okay, but then some "dangerous" ideas came up. Some of the population didn't like how slow the process of absolute democracy was, and instead of waiting a round to vote, a small fraction said that they should choose someone to make all their decisions. This didn't go well with the others, so the majority found them guilty of impeding the progress of the democracy, and they where put to death. Eventually all discussions of the vote became deadly.For example, one man was dissatisfied with the tax rate, and he died. A few people disagreed with the decision to turn the royal palace into a place of total death and ruin. So a large group of abolitionists got the death penalty. Not long after, they ran out of graves, so a decision was made to use the palace as a grave yard. Anyone who opposed the majority was killed of. 16474 people were sent to an early ticket to the afterlife, untill finally only three remained. A man, his wife, and one other who wanted to leave the country. The man who wanted to leave was voted to death by the man and his wife. Now just the man and his wife. The man's wife dies half a year before Kino and Hermes arrive at the country.
