The thread linked to in the text you quoted cites a figure of 59,000 judges* at a time when the citizen population was 400 million and extrapolates a judge force of around 100,000 at a time when the population had been further devastated by Necropolis, Judgement Day and Inferno in rapid succession. **

So, no apparent logic there.  It's as if they're making it up as they go along.

So from far lower ratio than any real-world city/country to a far higher ratio - though the latter does make sense, as judges would actually take notice of the medical guidance on avoiding the Chaos Bug, unlike the citizenry!

But Frank, you should be aware of two things:
1. We were making it up.
2. Inferno isn't, you know, real.

Did we not hammer this out about four years ago.
305 x 300 = 91,500 + 30,195 =129,695 / 10 x 6 = 73,017. Z

In the early days, we saw all the judges of the city sitting together in a small room.  And there were normal police too.  There are some continuity blips even Origins couldn't have hoped to fix.
