Autoselecting the "no official religion" choice, since there are too many magical classes in the world of Warcraft for Kul Tiras to devote itself to one.

Option 2!
* The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one.
* Kul Tiras's Civil Rights rose from "Good" to "Very Good".

The Merchant Kingdom of Kul Tiras is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Admiral Thornby with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.456 billion Tirasians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Public Transport, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 9.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Tirasian economy, worth 61.9 trillion golds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,484 golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Lord Admiral Thornby has just been declared ruler of Kul Tiras in an international press conference, military spending recently hit a new high, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Dwarves Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kul Tiras's national animal is the mermaid, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
